Good full red. Brooding nose hints at menthol and crushed stone; less expressive but more elegant than the Clos de Beze. The biggest, richest and deepest of this series, with powerful minerality contributing to the impression of backbone. Offers outstanding richness and intensity without weight and really expands in the mouth, but this will need a minimum of ten years of cellaring to express its flavor potential. Very closed today and not nearly as sweet as the Clos de Beze. The palate-dusting, powerfully mineral finish goes on and on. I suspect this will eventually merit an even higher score.

Not deep, transparent crimson. Very precise and heady. Lovely pure burgundy on the nose. So delicate and lovely and comme il faut. Very long. Just wonderfully balanced on a tightrope.
