Discreet if not invisible wood frames earthy red pinot fruit that leads to serious vibrant and wonderfully intense flavors that possess impressive size and weight and a bit less rusticity than usual all wrapped in a gorgeously long and deep finish. I find it interesting that this is a bit less structured than a number of the grands crus in the range as this is normally among the most age worthy wines here not that this is exactly a shrinking violet.

Deep complex nose offers red fruits iron cherry cola exotic flowers and underbrush. Broad sappy and mouthfilling with an unusually lush texture for this cuvee at this early stage. Fine-grained and voluminous wine with captivating savory earthy complexity. Finishes with very suave tannins and lovely length. This has the structure to age but today I'm not finding quite the punch or iodiney minerality I found from barrel a year ago.
