I very much like the mouthfeel of the energetic and intensely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that possess fine volume while flashing excellent persistence on the complex if youthfully austere and moderately structured finish. This should benefit from extended keeping and will need at least 5 to 7 years first. In a word, lovely. collapse

Distinctly dark aromas of blackberry, cassis and blueberry. This intense fruit bomb is a real high-wire act of concentrated sweet, ripe berry fruit and Vosne-side elegance. Silky, structured wine with serious force and a firm tannic spine to support a graceful evolution in bottle. The tiny millerandé berries here give the wine both sucrosité and acidity, according to Clavelier. This wine struck me as very different in style from the preceding samples.- ST collapse

The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, rounded in the mouth with desiccated orange peel and a touch of Moroccan spice and cinnamon on the finish. Fine, though not my favorite from Clavelier this vintage. collapse
