There's been no change in the vinification, nor in the vineyard. The change is an increase in the intensity of the flavours, and hence their length and aftertaste. It's an extraordinary wine, among the greatest of Burgundy (and elsewhere in the world). Whatever you expect from its future development will be delivered.

You don’t just drink a wine like this, you set it in your mind as a benchmark. It’s a wine built on power, texture and length, centre-half forward, centre-half back and ruck, with actidity roving through and the fragrance cheering loud. That seduction up front, that pure fresh peach, that huge energetic push through the back half. Blumey Charlie the crushed fennel characters here are full on. It’s on the frisky side of luxury. It’s damn good.

The palate has a plush, smoothly resolved texture with a rich, creamy texture and all-encompassing, ripe stone-fruit flavors, ahead of a very long, smooth finish. Grilled-hazelnut and apricot-kernel flavors to close. Great to drink now, but certainly a decade of cellaring in the tank, too. Screw cap.

Details of mineral, lime skin and Meyer lemon add a fresh thread of acidity and a sense of precision, finishing with a note of sesame seed. Drink now through 2030. 800 cases imported. — MW

There's a lovely, lifted line of acidity on the palate and the oak is nicely tucked away. It's a wine for a rich meal if drinking now but is best cellared up until 2030 or longer. CHRISTINA PICKARD
