Much less forthcoming on the nose than the Echezeaux hinting at black cherry flowers and mint; the only one of these 2004s to show a slight vegetal peppery quality. Then sweet primary and young on the palate with very good definition and grip to the black fruit and pepper flavors. Finishes with firm complex tannins. This rather austere but elegant wine needs a good six to eight years of cellaring. The team removed about 30% to 40% of the stems in 2004.

In contrast to the expressive spiciness of the Echézeaux this is a clear notch up in elegance and is clearly finer with an ultra high-toned floral and spice-infused nose that is almost completely closed in though this may be due to a subtle touch of reduction and I would suggest decanting this if you're going to try a bottle young. The linear and ultra pure medium full flavors trade more on finesse and refinement than what is usually a relatively powerful and muscular wine. This isn't a big wine but the superb detail and unmatched precision are stunning but be aware that it will be a wine for the patient as this is very understated at present and will very definitely require at least a decade of cellar time to really open up.
