Not surprisingly, the nose is similar to that of the Pommard "1er" though it's more complex with a perfumed character to the distinctly earth-inflected red currant, blue berry and plum aromas. There is good power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and muscular medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the perfectly balanced and highly persistent finish. This is really very impressive and while it's not quite at the same level as the 2010 version, it's a more than worthy successor.

(bottled in May of 2013): Bright medium red. Shy aromas of redcurrant, plum and spicy underbrush are less pristine than those of the young 2012. Supple and energetic, with dark cherry, raspberry and soil tones accented by minerals and peppery herbs. Nicely perfumed and savory wine with a restrained sweetness and very good verve. The dusty tannins should support mid-term aging. Winemaker Benjamin Leroux told me in November that this wine shut down hard after bottling but was starting to come back. The crop level here was about 32 hectoliters per hectare following some sorting.
