This is in the same stylistic camp as the Grands Echézeaux as it is surprisingly understated and subtle with an intensely floral nose of red and black fruit aromas that are nuanced and beautifully elegant merging seamlessly into linear reserved indeed almost brooding flavors that are as once supple yet precise and detailed all wrapped in a powerful and muscular finish that delivers striking length. This is a really interesting wine because it's a wine of contrasts yet it works because there is a gorgeous combination of finesse and power and again I really like the sense of drive and energy here as well as the first rate balance. A terrific '04.

Deeply pitched aromas of cassis earth and truffle ("underground aromas while the Romanee-Saint-Vivant is more ethereal" says Villaine). Fat and broad in the mouth with a strong earth-and-rocks character. Doesn't show quite the lift of the RSV but this is even sweeter. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. I suspect I'm catching this in an awkward stage.
