Product Description

". . . they were able to use 40% whole clusters for this wine in 2014. The wine has turned out beautifully and is very refined in this vintage, wafting from the glass in a blend of cherries, red currants, stony soil tones, venison, a touch of cinnamon and a bit of bonfire in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and focused beautifully, with a fine core, lovely, chewy and ripe tannins and a long, mineral-driven finish. This has really turned out beautifully and seems likely to be longer-lived than the Savigny premiers crus this year." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, 92+

"Here the nose plays right on the edge of reduction though not so much that the pretty mélange of dark currant, lilac, earth and spice hints are completely masked. I would however suggest decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle upon release. Otherwise there is plenty of verve to the beautifully detailed and notably saline middle weight flavors that deliver excellent persistence on the firm, mildly austere and balanced finish. Like the Fourneaux there is a backend hint of bitter cherry but it shouldn't last." Burghound 92 points.
