Ah, now this is a real Grand Cru! It has a wonderful, lively nose of dark cherries, dark chocolate, citrus lemon – orange peel perhaps. It just rushes up from the glass to greet your senses and utterly seduce them with its charms. The palate is very pure with a certain ravishing quality, an open, ebullient wine with supple, saturated tannins, vibrant acidity and great nervosite towards the minerally finish. Drink 2012-2030.

An exuberantly spicy and ripe nose of red and black cherries nuanced by hints of smoke, anise and crushed herb merges seamlessly into classy, seductive and opulently textured flavors that are borderline thick as there is so much dry extract and sap on the sweet and palate staining finish. This is a big Griotte yet it remains balanced, focused, delineated and delivers flat out tremendous persistence. A wow wine.
