...bursts from the glass with a stunning bouquet of orange rind, peonies, ripe wild berries, cassis, exotic spices and espresso roast, framed by a beautifully integrated application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and multidimensional, with ripe acids, a deep and concentrated core and a long, sapid finish... ...beautifully balanced.
...precise, focused bouquet of red berry fruit laced with crushed chalk and earthy notes, becoming more "airy" with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins, and more succulent than the Gevrey Premier Cru. A stark saltiness on the finish gives it tension and length. Superb.
...array of wonderfully fresh dark berry fruit aromas that are copiously laced with sauvage nuances. The sleek, intense and muscular middle weight plus flavors brim with a refreshing salinity that really comes up on the powerful, focused and youthfully austere finish. This is lovely though again, clearly built-to-age. (January 2020)
