Clean fresh purple with a wealth of succulent fruit, deep strawberry, heady raspberry a little chocolate dusting and of course the whole bunch effect with its spices. Acidity is up for the job but not evident much to taste – a tribute to the wealth of fruit. Just a faint note of salinity behind but does not in any way dominate. There is a little more fruit weight evident here than in recent years.

This is a classically firm, ageworthy expression of the terroir, marked by its 80% whole bunches, which give it a stemmy, peaty, almost Islay malt whisky-like note, a tannic backbone and layers of dark black cherry and damson fruit.

There is just a touch of reduction at first and the whole bunch element is more conspicuous here compared to the nascent 2019. Touches of brown spice, clove and freshly rolled tobacco accompany the black fruit. The palate has quite a lactic entry, a smear of dark chocolate that feels incongruous. Yet there is good depth and grip and it feels quite saline towards the finish, long in the mouth, though not as complex as other Grand Crus from this vintage. That said, it should age with style. -- Neal Martin

Offering up aromas of ripe cherries, berries, spices and orange rind, it's more obviously marked by cedary new oak than I perceived a year ago, and rustic aromas of smoked meats and fresh leather now mingle with its inviting fruit tones. Full-bodied, rich and layered, it concludes with a youthfully chewy, oak lactone-inflected finish.- WK
