The recent mise has not troubled this either as the nose is wonderfully expressive, rich and classy, leading to concentrated, dense, pure, textured and beautifully detailed and precise flavors that ooze minerality and sap on the wonderfully long finish. This is very powerful for a Beaune 1er and it will be capable of aging for two decades, perhaps longer.
Medium red. Raspberry, smoke, coffee and earth on the nose. Velvety and sweet, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the wine's flavors. Finishes lush, sweet and long, with a fine dusting of tannins.
The fragile scents of strawberry blossoms add to the exotic herbal tones of this fine-boned Pinot. Oak blunts it for now, but the underlying earthiness lasts. Wines from this vineyard usually need seven or eight years to develop, and everything is in place for this vintage to age with grace.
Backward. Chewy and rustic, with density and concentration. Cherry, raspberry and spice are the main flavor themes, with sweet fruit carrying through the long finish.
