Rides a nice line between smoothness and chewy density. Fine length. Best from 2023 through 2045. — B.S. collapse

There is more size, weight and power to the moderately dense middle weight plus flavors that are not particularly refined though there is a certain seductive character to the sneaky long and youthfully austere finale. collapse

Aromas of strawberry, cherry and rose petal are a bit muted by musky leathery reduction; showed some darker fruit character as it opened in the glass. Offers an attractive balance between thickness and energy but quite backward today and distinctly more clenched than the Aux Combottes. Finishes with good verve and thrust, and a hint of bloody steak, but not quite the class of a great Charmes. Arlaud's vines are actually located in the top part of Mazoyères, just under Latricières. They range from 25 to 70 years of age, but he often declassifies most of the younger vines into his Gevrey villages, as he did in 2016. He noted that the young vines produced nicely concentrated grapes in '16 but they were picked near the beginning of the harvest and lacked the density of the older vines. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
