Crushed black cherry and violet on the withdrawn slightly medicinal nose; like the Clos de Beze this shows the cool side of the vintage. Less sweet and pliant than the Clos de Beze with hints of violet and spices and a distinctly inky quality in the early going. Best today on the long finish but this is primary and very backward. Girardin notes that these grapes which are from the lower portion of the Chambertin vineyard looked better than those from the Clos de Beze.
