Complex meaty and spicy nose. This effortlessly marries the wild and refined sides of this Grand Cru! The fruit character stands on a mighty tower of tannins that are at once fine and slightly herbal. What an amazingly energetic finish! Drink or hold.

Delivers a velvety texture that wraps around flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum, earth and spice. This is holding back a little now, with excellent balance and a finish that should develop even more length with time. Shows a solid core of fruit. Best from 2025 through 2045.

Bruce Sanderson - Wine Spectator

Here too there is moderately generous wood to be found on the earthier and more sauvage-inflected aromas of black cherry liqueur and discreet floral wisps. There is better energy and good delineation on the only slightly more concentrated flavors that do deliver impressive length on the balanced and firm finale where a similar hint of bitter pit fruit emerges. It's not clear whether this can, or will, add body and mid-palate flesh with a few years of aging. Drink from 2032+.
