Deep ruby! Knockout high-pitched nose offers blackberry, dark raspberry, spices, licorice, bitter chocolate and violet, plus a note of crushed stone. Silky and highly concentrated, with superb depth of fruit and thrust; brilliant acidity contributes to the wine's vibrant inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with huge, palate-saturating but smooth tannins and a powerful impression of medicinal reserve. 'We had thick skins in 2009 and a great skin to juice ratio,' said Boillot, noting that this wine had the highest pH of any of his Côte de Beaune cuvées, at a low-for-the-vintage 3.4. Built for a long life in bottle. (ST)

The intense, detailed and cool extract-rich middle weight flavors ooze a fine minerality on the mouth coating finish that delivers excellent persistence. This serious effort is clearly built to age and will need every bit of a decade to reach its full maturity.
