Product Description

“Complex, ripe, soil-driven scents of black raspberry, smoke and underbrush. Utterly seamless and sweet on the palate, conveying a noble texture to its flavors of dark berries, crushed rock and smoke. There's something Musigny-like here, and André Esmonin notes that the rocky, sandy soil is not unlike that of Musigny. More harmonious today than the Mazy-Chambertin, finishing with fine-grained tannins and outstanding subtle rising length. Left behind a captivating floral perfume in the empty glass. The yield here was 32 hectoliters per hectare in 2015, according to Frédéric Esmonin.” Stephen Tanzer 94 points.

“There is a hint of truffle on the fresh and high-toned liqueur-like aromas that run more toward the red side of the fruit spectrum. The layered, sweet and concentrated flavors are blessed with ample dry extract underpinned by moderately firm tannins and excellent length. This is a balanced and deeper wine with plenty of minerality that should drink well after only 5 to 7 years if desired.” Burghound 93 points.
