It was picked on September 19 and 22, completely destemmed and aged for 17 months in oak. I found this showing just a touch of reduction on the nose, but with encouragement it reveals attractive blackberry and bilberry aromas, a touch of violet with time. The palate is smooth on the entry, supple in the mouth with well judged acidity, a pinch of white pepper towards the finish that (like other 2014s at this stage) is structured so that it feels Mazoyères in style. I think they made a good decision giving that grower his P45 -- this is excellent. - Neal Martin

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!

Wood smoke and toasty spice notes envelop the black cherry and earth flavors in this firm yet fluid red. Though tannic, this is fresh and packed with flavor that resonates on the long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. ...   Wood smoke and toasty spice notes envelop the black cherry and earth flavors in this firm yet fluid red.

Musky aromas of raspberry, rose petal and smoked meat display some funky underbrushy reduction. Then pure, bright and concentrated but backward in the mouth, showing a serious tannic backbone for aging. Very promising for this bottling chez Drouhin. -- Stephen Tanzer

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.
