Description

Note: from parcels measuring .57 ha in Clos du Roi, 1.2 ha in Bressandes and .5 ha in Renardes though only 1.74 ha of this are currently in production

Tasting note: A ripe, fresh and layered nose combines notes of plum, spice, earth and plenty of floral influences. There is fine richness to the relatively supple middle weight flavors that possess a velvety mid-palate mouthfeel along with reasonable if not special density, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, balanced and sneaky long finish where a hints of warmth and sweetness eventually emerge. This minerally effort needs to develop better depth but the potential appears to be present for that to occur. 93 Points - Allen Meadows, Burghound
