A remarkable achievement from vines cropped at very low yields the 2008 La Fleur Morange is also sensational. According to Claude Gros this wine hit 14% natural alcohol in a vintage where the average was around 13% to 13.5%. Dense purple in color it possesses intense blueberry and dark raspberry jam notes intermixed with camphor crushed rock and spring flowers. Full-bodied unctuously textured long and stunningly pure this wine should drink well for at least 10-15 years.

This is starting to open now and shows beautiful light chocolate with spice and berry character. Hazelnut and iron. Stylish. Full-bodied and juicy with a tangy acidity. It’s really savory. Drink or hold.

Broad and fleshy exhibiting lots of melted fig black currant paste and graphite notes woven with maduro tobacco and bittersweet cocoa. There's a long smoldering finish. Best from 2012 through 2017. 291 cases made. -JM
