The wine was raised in twenty percent new cask this year and offers up a simply beautiful bouquet of plums, red and black cherries, smoked meats, a touch of cocoa powder, a complex base of soil tones, lovely floral elements and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off superb depth of sappy fruit at the core, with beautiful soil signature, ripe, fine-grained tannins and lovely balance and grip on the long and complex finish. This is great Bressandes in the making!

Slightly deeper in color than the Les Maréchaudes, it has more depth and complexity on the nose, the blackberry, raspberry, wild hedgerow and damp-earthy, mossy aromas soaring from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins, and smoother and silkier than the Les Maréchaudes, leading to a sensual, pure, caressing finish. A gorgeous 2018 from Chardonnay des Briailles. -- Neal Martin

Full-bodied, layered and velvety, it's sumptuous and enveloping, with an ample core of pure, succulent fruit framed by lively acids and powdery tannins. - William Kelley

There is excellent richness, volume and mid-palate concentration to the powerful and firmly structured flavors where the finish is long though mildly sweet. Like the Vergelesses, I suspect that the sweetness will eventually dissipate with age.

Compact now, it will need some time to open and reveal the fruit and its sweet, woodsy spice notes. Shows excellent balance and length. Best from 2024 through 2040. — B.S.
