A pure and gorgeously complex nose offers up notes of extract of black pinot fruit, stone, anise, sandalwood and lavender nuances. The flavor profile displays more volume and richness than the regular Caillerets with perhaps a bit more minerality as well before culminating in a palate soaking finish that goes on and on. Note however that this is a distinctly firm wine in the context of the 2011 vintage and will need at least a decade of bottle age to arrive at its peak. A beautiful effort.

(from low-yielding old vines): Full ruby-red. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, raspberry and game, with a high-pitched suggestion of cassis leaf. Silky, sappy and broad in the mouth, with intense black fruit flavors joined on the back by licorice and mineral nuances. In a distinctly powerful style, finishing very long and strong, with serious but suave tannins. Really saturates the mouth and titillates the taste buds.
