Bright dark red. At once pungent and delicate on the nose, offering highly nuanced aromas of fresh crushed raspberry, white pepper, crushed stone, iron and mint. Penetrating and extremely intense, but with the mint and white pepper notes giving the middle palate an impression of thrust with a magically light touch. Bone-dry and uncompromising, showing little easy sweetness, this brilliantly delineated Griottes will need extended aging to fill out and to absorb its acids and tannins. As backward as this wine is, it's distinctly feminine in a Chambolle way. (ST)
There is enough reduction to suppress the fruit though floral hints can still be discerned. Otherwise there is terrific intensity and energy to the big-bodied yet elegant flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the sleek and refined yet quite serious finish. This is not as complex as several of its grand cru compatriots but the underlying material appears to be present such that my range assumes that more will almost certainly develop.
