Description

Note: a 2 ha parcel with a mix of 80% 75+ year old vines and the remainder of 15 to 20 year old vines

Tasting note: Reduction again masks the fruit though it does seem ripe. There is good power and punch to the very round but imposing medium weight plus flavors that possess a sleek muscularity before culminating in a lightly mineral-inflected, palate coating and impressively persistent finish. I very much like the complexity though it's clear that this very firmly structured effort is going to require an extended stay in a cool cellar. Classic Pruliers. Sweet spot Outstanding - Allen Meadows, Burghound
