92+ Bright red. Classy but reticent nose hints at bitter cherry. Densely packed and seriously concentrated, showing superb stony lift to the flavors of black cherry, violet and licorice.

Densely packed and seriously concentrated, showing superb stony lift to the flavors of black cherry, violet and licorice. Really wonderful 2013 energy and density here, along with sneaky sweetness of fruit. Shows a youthful medicinal aspect but this is a bomb of primary dark fruits (Bitouzet described it as "a Pommard that changed its sex"). Finishes broad and long, with ripe, dusty tannins.

Burghound - Burghound, April 2015
This too is reduced and I would proffer the same advice to decant this in advance. In the same vein as the Clos des Chênes this is a big wine with plenty of volume to the delicious and stony middle weight flavors though... This too is reduced and I would proffer the same advice to decant this in advance. In the same vein as the Clos des Chênes this is a big wine with plenty of volume to the delicious and stony middle weight flavors though if there is a perceptible difference in the mouth feel it’s due to the fact that they don’t have quite the same level of concentration, all wrapped in a mildly austere finish that delivers excellent length. There is a touch of wood present at the moment but this should be more than capable of eating it in short order. 2023+
