From here on out, every single wine was plain stunning, earning my little * thingy for the wowie zowie bells going off. This is one of my many pet favorite bottlings of the house….from the first whiff: “Aromatically class! In the mouth, this is toute en delicatesse, with pinpoint precision and long harmonious length. just wow.!” A little * awarded here. Nico said that since 2015, this has become his favorite 1er cru of the range.
“Enough wood to warrant mentioning can be found on the pretty nose that combines notes of both red and dark cherry with those of plum and warm earth. There is impressive richness to the attractively textured and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that possess an appealing inner mouth perfume along with fine length on the spicy finish. This should be reasonably approachable in its youth. (90-92)/2023+” Allan Meadows
