Description

Note: from a total holding of 4.67 ha of 50+ year old vines from 2 different climats, 90% of which is in Les Poulaillères and the remainder is in Clos St. Denis

Tasting note: A completely different nose offers up much spicier and slightly toastier aromas of red currant, pomegranate, sandalwood and an interesting hint of incense. There is excellent vibrancy to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that don't have the minerality of the Corton but do offer slightly better depth and precision on the lingering finale that is shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins. This should be approachable a bit earlier than usual. 93 Points - Allen Meadows, Burghound
