From the original en la Chapelle parcel, this is yet another old vine, as good as it gets example from Nico and family.
“”(from a .52 ha parcel in En la Chapelle). Here the wood treatment is more subtle if not invisible on the elegant and admirably pure nose of that features aromas of plum, violet and discreet wisps of spice and earth. There is more volume if less minerality to the medium weight flavors that possess a lush, even opulent mouth feel before terminating in a focused, complex and beautifully balanced finale. Despite the relatively generous mouth feel there are firm tannins underpinning this beauty that will require a few more years of cellar time to resolve. (91-93)/2025+” Allan Meadows
