But this full-bodied red is tough and angular and a bit woody. Needs years in the cellar to show it all but loads of ripe fruit terroir and mineral character anchor it in pedigreed Burgundian soil. Best from 2010 through 2030. -PM

A slightly green note is buried beneath the remarkably dense aromas of classic Vosne spice and crushed blackberries full-bodied very sappy flavors with a terrific inner core of complexity and still more spice. The purity of extract displayed here is mind bending and the overall harmony of expression is something to see. This remains quite backwards and will require plenty of patience.

Great pungent nose exudes blackberry licorice bitter chocolate and minerals; sappy but still faintly reduced. Tightly wound and powerful; high-pitched spicy and minerally but currently showing less density and flesh than the Grands-Echezeaux. But a superb spine of acidity gives this very unevolved wine terrific verve and snap. Finishes impressively long and fine with firm tannins and strong spice notes. Offers exciting potential but will require a good seven or eight years of cellaring.
