($105) Bright, saturated red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of black cherry, raspberry, flowers and minerals. Juicy, pure and vibrant, with fruit-driven flavors and more obvious minerality than the Chambolle. Fine-grained and long on the finish, conveying an impression of energy. Very much a wine from calcaire

Moderate reduction blocks a reasonable evaluation of the nose though the more concentrated flavors evidence red berry extract with earth and subtle spice notes that culminate in a velvety, punchy and round finish that offers fine detail if not great elegance. A solid villages.
