WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2014
Lean and sinewy, with sandalwood and licorice augmenting the cherry, berry and mineral aromas and flavors. Very tight on the long finish, leading to a spice- and fruit-driven aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2026. 86... Lean and sinewy, with sandalwood and licorice augmenting the cherry, berry and mineral aromas and flavors.

(ST89-92 points) Bright medium red. Lively aromas of redcurrant, red cherry and pepper, plus a whiff of game. Shows strong graphite and pepper notes in the mouth, but the wine's fruit is currently suppressed by sulfur... (ST89-92 points) Bright medium red. Lively aromas of redcurrant, red cherry and pepper, plus a whiff of game. Shows strong graphite and pepper notes in the mouth, but the wine's fruit is currently suppressed by sulfur. Finishes saline, dense and chewy, with more obvious tannins than the Chambolle cuvees. This needs the sweetening influence of a racking.

(BH89-92 points) Very generous wood dominates the otherwise fresh nose of dark berry, earth and humus aromas. The supple and round medium weight flavors possess good mid-palate concentration and verve before terminating in an austere, cool and mineral-inflected finish. My predicted range assumes that the wood can be successfully integrated.
