The wine was still in barrel at the time of my visit, but showing very fine potential in its aromatic constellation of red and black cherries, a touch of cassis, grilled meats, espresso, mustard seed, dark soil tones and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and properly reserved out of the blocks, with a good core, suave tannins and a long, tangy and quite soil-driven finish. This is a very auspicious start for the maison’s new source in Charmes!

There is by contrast good freshness and verve to the lightly mineral-inflected and well-detailed medium weight flavors that possess a fine sense of energy on the clean, slightly austere and saline-infused finish. This is prettier than it is deep though this too should repay cellaring it for 10 to 12 years.
