This is a wine of unbelievable power concentration and exceptional extraction. Deep layers of cocoa powder-dusted figs and prunes vie with a compote of red cherries stones and creamed mocha flavors for the taster's attention. This full-bodied velvety-textured sur-maturite-laced wine lingers on the palate for at least 40 seconds. It is a prodigiously breathtaking Burgundy. Projected maturity: now-2012+. Importer: Kobrand Inc.

Excellent red-ruby color. Superripe briary aromas of raspberry mocha chocolate and brown spices; verging on roasted. Then thick and sweet with explosive sappy raspberry and chocolate flavors and great middle-palate... Excellent red-ruby color. Superripe briary aromas of raspberry mocha chocolate and brown spices; verging on roasted. Then thick and sweet with explosive sappy raspberry and chocolate flavors and great middle-palate volume. An utterly seamless wine that finishes with smooth tannins excellent vinosity and terrific persistence. A great showing. "Some growers picked too early and others too late. We had 13.5% natural alcohol ripeness like we've never seen." 94 points
