    Deep ruby-red. Violet and licorice on the nose. Wonderful sweetness and lushness on entry, then explosively fruity in the middle, with a suggestion of exotic fruits. Like the last two samples, this shows uncanny inner-mouth perfume. Very long, very subtle aftertaste. Tasted alongside the '97, this showed the brighter acidity and stronger thrust of the '96 vintage. These Roty grand crus should be extremely long-lived.

    This wine has a bright black color and a profound nose of sweet cherries laced with toasty oak. This elegant, velvety-textured, medium-to-full-bodied, and concentrated wine reveals smoked bacon, black cherries, cassis, minerals, and grilled oak. While seemingly not as dense and intense as the Mazis, this offering appears to be holding a great deal in reserve.

    Soft, seductive, very forward and quite focused pinot fruit with flavors that already display outstanding depth and grand cru intensity. As wonderful as these elements are though, it is the stunning length that really distinguishes this wine. Despite the forward character of the fruit, there is a definite reserve to the flavors, as though it is revealing only a part of its ultimate potential; if so, my score will prove to be conservative. Much like the Charmes, this should also evolve positively for many years to come.
