This also displays a generous amount of wood on the ultra-fresh mix of red currant, dark cherry, earth and plenty of floral influence. There is excellent power to the focused, muscular and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that terminate in a youthfully austere and hugely persistent finale. This too is very clearly built-to-age and I would recommend not cracking one of these before at least 10 years has passed.
It was a nice segue to the Pommard Rugiens, boasting iron, violet, black currant and blueberry notes backed by a firm, tense structure.
Moderately saturated medium red. Reticent, complex aromas of raspberry, medicinal cherry, coffee and iron. More serious and backward in the mouth than the examples from Beaune and Volnay, showing less easy sweetness but noteworthy focus to its racy red fruit, iron and mineral flavors. This insidiously penetrating wine finishes dry and classic, with a serious tannic spine that will require patience. I'm not sure I would have guessed that this was a 2015. 93+ points. (ST)
