Description

Note: from a .60 ha parcel in En Gémeaux

Tasting note: Once again there is just enough reduction present to mask the underlying fruit but not the earth and underbrush elements; moreover it is sufficiently light that I doubt that it will persist for very long. Otherwise there is a slightly finer mouth feel to the sleek, intense and muscular mineral-driven flavors that explode on the sappy, rich and balanced finale that displays strikingly good length. However, note well that like the Charmes, this is definitely not constructed for early drinking so be prepared to have at least some patience. 92-95 Allen Meadows, Burghound

A burly cherry nose, quite powerful. Rich, suave and very concentrated, but there's also a brightness that counters the very firm tannins. Grippy and even gawky now, but it has sufficient fruit to keep it in eventual balance. Very long finish.  95 points Decanter
