Bright, saturated medium red. Knockout perfume of cranberry, pomegranate, raspberry and white pepper. Vividly high-pitched and fine-grained in the mouth, with its penetrating, floral red fruit flavors accented by pungent crushed-stone minerality. Delivers outstanding intensity without weight, not to mention superb inner-mouth tension and saline complexity. This fabulously perfumed wine finishes with terrific rising length. This wine may not have the volume or power of the Combe d'Orveau but I suspect it will dance on its sibling's grave. (ST)
While the wood influence on the plum, dark cherry, violet and spice aromas is more subtle it's by no means invisible. The wonderfully sleek, intense and even more mineral-driven medium weight flavors culminate in a firm, serious and moderately austere finale. As with the Combe d'Orveau, my predicted range assumes that the wood will ultimately be absorbed.
Light to mid cherry red. A little less open than the Beaux Bruns. As with the Nuits-St-Georges Aux Chaignots, you can see the inclusion of stems on the nose in a lightly herbal character but it is not in the least unripe, just fragrant – it opens delightfully in the glass. Dry finesse and long, scented fruit on the palate. Super-refined. Needs time. 17/20 points. (JH)
