The tannins are a shade firmer than in the other Grand Crus from Faiveley, but it was always that way. Deep, dark and cool finish that goes on and on. Better from 2023.

This red starts out generous, with a supple texture buffering vivid acidity and firm tannins, allowing the cherry, strawberry, blood orange and spice flavors to star.

Shuts down on the finish, delivering more structure than fruit. Licorice and sandalwood accents come into play. Best from 2023 through 2045. — BS

There is an attractive freshness and plenty of vivacity to the velvet-textured full-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess terrific punch on the beautifully long, youthfully austere and notably firm finish. I like the overall sense of complexity and this too should age effortlessly.

Thin soils and east-facing exposure ripen fruit well, and the harvest in this year began on 29th August. The yield was good, and the wine is fresh and aromatic, with a perfumed nose of red fruits and violet. It is showing a bit of wood at present but should come together well with a bit of aging. This wine demonstrated that 2017 will be a vintage to drink on the fruit, yet will provide great pleasure.

On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a fleshy core of fruit, ripe but lively acids and powdery framing tannins, concluding with a sapid, youthfully oak-inflected finish. This is a deep and comparatively structured effort in the context of this approachable vintage, and it will merit a bit of bottle age. - William Kelley
