    ($90-$118) Good deep red. Brooding aromas of medicinal black cherry and licorice. Big, rich and chewy, combining impressive volume with sweet but vibrant flavors of black cherry and currant. The sweet, youthful finish features lovely broad tannins. This left behind a truffley nuance in the empty glass.

    Bright crimson with rather a hidden nose. Very sinewy indeed - should mellow eventually. Lots of bright fruit though for the moment pretty backward. Substance here but race too. For the moment rather difficult to read.

    The vines of Lafarge's 2005 Beaune Greves have passed seventy years of age, and on this occasion they seem uninterested in trying to charm or cajole the taster. The pure black fruit essences on display in this formidably dense Pinot smell and taste as though they were macerated on chalk pebbles and fruit pits. High-toned notes of herbal distillates in the nose transform themselves on the palate into a bitter-sweet medicinal character. Abundant, fine-grained tannin suggests the need to hold this for 5-7 years before even attempting to revisit it. Right now, there seems to be a virtual avalanche of stones blocking the path to fruit in the finish. Still, given the concentration and ripeness of raw material and the track record of this site in the Lafarge hands, I would hesitate to bet against it in 2005 of all vintages.
