Tasting Notes

88-91 points from Allen Meadows: "This too evidences moderate wood spice on the somber and reserved dark berry fruit nose that marries well with the rich, full and relatively big-boned flavors that possess a dusty mouth feel and plenty of dry extract that coats the mouth on the serious and punchy finish." This comes from Domaine Parent, formerly run by Jacques Parent, and now run by his daughters Anne and Catherine Parent. As if Burgundy were not otherwise confusing enough, there are two other Domaines Parent, which are related. The second domaine is Domaine Francois Parent, run by Jacques' son Francois, who is married to Anne-Francoise Gros. (Not to be confused with Anne Gros, who has a separate domaine., which was formerly called Anne & Francois Gros, when she worked with her father.) Finally, there is a third Domaine Parent, run by Annick Parent, daughter of Jean Parent, whose wines were formerly made at Jacques Parent's domaine. Only in Burgundy! In any case, the wine is just a touch on the tannic side, with masculine structure, nice cherry notes and lots of extraction and weight, but great size and length.
