Slightly metallic aromas of black raspberry licorice and bitter chocolate with a suggestion of charred oak (Girardin used 40% new oak for his grand crus in 2008 up a bit from recent vintages). Supple and rather refined in the mouth with lovely dark fruit flavors offering a subtle sweetness. Juicy in the middle but shows an edge of acidity on the back. I got the impression from Girardin who prefers this wine to the 2007 version that this sample may contain a higher percentage of juice from new barrels than the ultimate blend will.

This is really quite pretty with an expressive and layered nose of red pinot fruit raspberry and plum that is nuanced by hints of earth and underbrush both of which can also be found on the cool pure and generous flavors... This is really quite pretty with an expressive and layered nose of red pinot fruit raspberry and plum that is nuanced by hints of earth and underbrush both of which can also be found on the cool pure and generous flavors that possess better detail and precision on the solidly powerful and mouth coating backend. This could also be enjoyed young even though it has the structure to reward 6 to 8 years of cellaring.
