(from .29 ha parcel planted in 1928). An expressive nose isn’t quite as elegant but the rose petal, violet, lavender and dark berry aromas offer slightly better complexity. There is a refined mid-palate mouthfeel to the tautly muscular medium weight flavors that contrast somewhat with the firm, serious and mildly austere finish that flirts with rusticity. This too should benefit from at least a few years of bottle age to round out. 2024+
(just three barrels produced): Healthy bright red. Lively scents of raspberry, wild strawberry and minerals. The palate offers excellent density of red fruits with lovely inner-mouth floral lift. This firmly tannic, solidly structured wine boasts mouth-saturating concentration. (ST)
The lovely premier cru of Les Gruenchers reveals pretty aromas of raspberry, candied strawberry, violet, and a sweet framing of new oak. It's followed by a silky, pure and medium-full palate impression, buttressed by succulent acids and finishing with good precision. Drinking Window 2024-2040. (WK)
