Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 La Grande Rue Grand Cru has a backward and broody bouquet, very complex with hints of woodland, damp earth and fern filtering through the tightly wound red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and very fine, almost filigree tannins. The acidity is beautifully judged here -- very focused and refined, seamless towards the sophisticated finish. This is one of the best vintages of La Grand Rue that I have tasted, which is a considerable achievement given that this was not an exemplary growing season. Tasted September 2016. - Neal Martin

(BH92-94 points) Like the Clos de Vougeot there is just enough reduction present to mask the fruit and render a proper assessment of the nose difficult. There is good volume and richness to the mineral-inflected and velvety medium weight flavors that possess solid mid-palate density on the balanced, intense and impressively lengthy finish. I very much like the fine grain to the tannins and this too should amply repay extended keeping yet be approachable after only 6 to 8 years of cellar time.

Pure, boasting cherry, raspberry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors. Features a dense structure, ending with a chalky feel. Shows excellent length and balance. Best from 2018 through 2032. — B.S.
