Here is Jean-Pierre’s rockhead pet favorite wine, from the upper slope, white stony soils of la Comme. He affectionately refers to it as the “la Romanée des pauvres” (a poor man’s la Romanée). The nose smells intensely chalky/stony, then the attack is all silky and caressing. The finish gives the impression of a slowly dissolving mineral solid, all elegance and creeping palate staining presence. I can see why Jean-Pierre likes this so much, as its elegance and substance are noteworthy…..
