Large-scaled, spicy and deep, as tactile as a solid without coming across as obviously phenolic. A real essence of Burgundy in its density and concentration. Wonderfully integrated acidity leavens and extends the explosive, smooth finish. No rough edges here. This is 13.6% alcohol but is neither overripe nor lacking in acid spine.

An extraordinarily complex nose that is even more complex than that of the Chevalier, if perhaps not quite as elegant, displays seriously impressive breadth to the ripe aromas of acacia blossom, anise, clove, white peach... An extraordinarily complex nose that is even more complex than that of the Chevalier, if perhaps not quite as elegant, displays seriously impressive breadth to the ripe aromas of acacia blossom, anise, clove, white peach and subtle pear aromas. There is exceptionally good richness to the broad shouldered and palate staining flavors that display a bit more minerality than usual before culminating in an overtly powerful, saline and explosively long finish that also really fans out on the finish. This is really a lovely effort that combines the elegance of the Chevalier with the muscularity of the Bâtard. Note that patience will be required however as this is unlikely to drink particularly well young.
