The wonderfully refined and lilting flavors are shaped by notably fine-grained yet firm tannins on the focused and balanced finish that firms up considerably on the youthfully austere finish. This is textbook Mitans and lovely stuff.

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy,
No frost but a small crop as always, no more than 25 hl ha. Two thirds whole bunch fermentation. Fresh dense purple, a lovely bouquet with just the right spice from the whole bunches, detailed rather than oppressive...   No frost but a small crop as always, no more than 25 hl ha. Two thirds whole bunch fermentation. Fresh dense purple, a lovely bouquet with just the right spice from the whole bunches, detailed rather than oppressive. There is a delicious plush element to the texture while retaining the mineral thread of the stems. Very suave, and lovely fruit returns behind.

Cool black cherry aroma lifted by a stony quality. A step above the preceding samples in both juiciness and finesse; in fact, a real high-wire act of captivating sweetness and bright acidity. Very fine-grained, serious wine with excellent grip and length. These 45-year-old vines avoided the frost but yielded very little fruit, as they were very sensitive to rain and wind during the flowering. -- Stephen Tanzer

Around one-quarter of the vines suffered frost damage here. It has a more charming bouquet than the Champans, the whole bunch neatly disguised and lending discrete definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin and well-judged acidity. It's quite structured like the Les Champans; however, I discerned more grace and finesse here. - NM
