Very subtle nose of red fruit with nice floral notes and discreet spicy oak. Glides over the palate, the fine tannins already beautifully integrated. Very long, silky finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Dark berry fruit commingles with wet clay and light minty aromas. The palate is well balanced with a silky texture, a little "fatter" than the Beaune Grèves, with hints of licorice toward the persistent and very saline finish. This deserves four to five years in bottle, but it has a long, prosperous future ahead. -- Neal Martin

Medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, it's sumptuous and vibrant, with powdery structuring tannins, bright acids and a broad, expansive finish. Finer-boned than the ripe, powerful 2018, it's very promising. - WK

The medium weight flavors are quite rich yet also relatively fine with solid delineation that carries over to the balanced and lingering finish. This could use more depth but there is sufficient potential for that to occur.

The young vines are all destemmed, but the old vines are almost all done as whole clusters, delivering a rich, lush character, with dark fruit, plus hints of smoke and spice. On the palate, the wine is rich and fairly dense, with a pleasantly firm structure. The wine is accessible young, but has the substance to age for decades to come. (Drink between 2021-2034)
