Purity and precision, this is really smart wine, as it has been produced just from their better block. Racy and fresh, 30% whole bunch vinification has worked very well. Excellent length.

Full-bodied, rich and enveloping, it's broad and dramatic, with a concentrated core of fruit, succulent acids, and velvety tannins that render it unusually approachable at this early stage.- WK

Limpid in color, it has a crisp, well-defined bouquet, showing more precision than the Clos-de-Bèze tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky texture, quite rich but nicely focused, with probably more oak on the finish that will need to be subsumed. The 30% whole bunch lends a little freshness that is crucial for this blend. Good potential. -- Neal Martin

The velvet-textured yet overtly powerful and muscular big-bodied flavors flash good muscle on the palate drenching, firm and very serious finish where the only nit is a trace of warmth. Patience absolutely advised. Occasionally when information is transferred from the Issues to the database errors are created.
