The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, good acidity and quite an assertive, voluminous finish that retains impressive tension. This is a vin de garde that will really reach its peak after 10 years in bottle. - Neal Martin collapse

The old vines here were planted in the same year as the oldest vines in the Morey AC bottling- 1936.

The 2012 version is going to be a legendary effort for this wine, as it offers up a deep, pure and utterly superb nose of black cherries, plums, cocoa, gamebirds, dark soil tones, woodsmoke, mustard seed and a deft framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and rock solid at the core, with ripe, utterly suave tannins, great focus and grip, tangy acids and stunning length on the perfectly balanced and very soil-driven finish. Great juice! collapse

Rich and complex, offering noteworthy sappy density to the flavors of boysenberry, licorice and spices. Energized by beautifully integrated acidity. The Riotte will give pleasure earlier, but this very primary wine is denser and purer, and shows an exhilarating urgency to its fruit. Finishes vibrant and long, with very fine-grained tannins. Perfectly judged extraction here: a superb vintage for this consistently satisfying cuvée. collapse
