Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose melds flowers, minerals, smoke, musky game and a primary berry element like crushed grapes. Superrich and silky, with an exhilarating tangy quality and the balance and length of a grand cru. Subtle smoky nuances on the very long finish, which features lush, thoroughly buffered tannins. This wine was fermented in wood vats with 20% whole clusters (as was the Echezeaux and Latricieres-Chambertin) and aged in 40% new oak (compared to 50% for most of the other premier crus here).Author: Stephen Tanzer
