Healthy dark red. Knockout pungent aromas and flavors of pomegranate, red raspberry, blood orange and high-pitched spices, with the 33% whole-cluster treatment contributing an element of peppery lift. Boasts a nobly fine-grained texture but it's hard to describe this wine as silky owing to its almost painful penetration on the palate. Great éclat and precision here. Finishes with incredible tactile breadth and cut, the wine's rising, palate-saturating flavors of red berries, spices, flowers and minerals blowing past its firm but utterly refined tannins. This dazzling Musigny already displays incredibly heady, complex perfume but will need a decade or more to approach its apogee in bottle.
The 2015 Musigny Grand Cru has a very detailed, complex bouquet with "cool" dark berry fruit intermingling with damp moss, iodine and crushed violet aromas. There is a purring engine underneath the bonnet of this Musigny. The palate is medium-bodied with endearing balance, a really stylish and assured Musigny with gratifying precision and complexity towards the finish that fans out gloriously. And yet there is much more hidden away here, to wit, a Musigny that deserves several years in bottle. This has huge potential. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers.

(from 90+ year old vines in a parcel measuring .32 ha). Here too the wood is so strong that it essentially crushes the underlying fruit. There is however superb density of material supporting the borderline huge yet almost inexplicably refined flavors that brim with dry extract while delivering incredible persistence on the mineral and palate drench finish that simply goes on and on. Like the Grands Ech this is a massively constituted Musigny that is going to need a very, very long time to reach its full majority but I hope that I’m around to see it when it does! In a word, brilliant. (94-97)/2035+
Powerful and majestic on the nose, with explosive raspberry fruit. A supple attack, but the tannins aren't slow to emerge and engulf the palate. There's great power, intensity and drive here, but it will need a while to show its full splendour. Grippy, very long finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040
