An aerial red lacy in texture evoking notes of rose peony strawberry raspberry and spice. Yet this has its feet on the ground as well with a mineral element that emerges on the lingering finish.

Yet this has its feet on the ground as well with a mineral element that emerges on the lingering finish. Shows lovely harmony and sophistication. Best from 2014 through 2030. -BS

The spicy and densely fruited nose is stunningly elegant with breathtaking purity and is followed by rich intense and powerful broad-scaled flavors that are naturally sweet and precise all culminating in an explosive and highly persistent finish. This is by no means a really big Musigny yet it is impeccably well-balanced fresh and complete. In sum this is a seriously fine effort. - Comments: Don't miss!

Exotic berry aromas are complicated by violet cocoa coffee and toast. Then almost surprisingly supple and sweet on the palate showing a more attractive early balance and more finesse than the 2009 version. The spicy acidulated fruit and floral flavors convey a strong impression of energy. Finishes classically dry and saline with peppery acidity and a slightly youthful toughness. 92+
