($86) Deep red-ruby. Higher-pitched aromas of black cherry, licorice and fresh herbs. Intensely flavored but tightly wound; much less pliant than Lafarge's Volnays, showing a medicinal, minty freshness today. Tannins are substantial but sweet.

Red cherries, stones, and currants are detected in the aromatic profile of the 2002 Beaune Greves. Light to medium-bodied, its raspberry, red currant, and gravel flavors lead to a fresh, yet firm finish.

Very ripe red cherry, strawberry and pinot fruit aromas explode from the glass and introduce exceptionally fresh and exuberant, sappy and pure medium weight flavors underpinned by dusty, textured tannins and plenty of finishing velvet and silk. There is an utterly seductive inner mouth perfume and the length is most impressive. As good a young Lafarge GrŠves as I can recall at this stage.
ruby colour; nose a bit musty at first, giving way to vegetal notes; it tasted a bit old on the palate at first though improved after opening to reveal notes of red cherries and spices; the finish was short; past its peak
