As good as it gets, from the old vine sweet spot at the base of the Mont Damnes parcel.
DON’T MISS THE OUTSTANDING ’14S!
“The 2014 La Comtesse, which hails from a plot of fifty year-old vines in the Monts
Damnés, is stunning, delivering a very pure and complex bouquet of lime, gooseberry, complex,
chalky minerality, citrus peel, loads of botanicals and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate
the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with superb refinement and precision,
fine acidity and great length and grip on the impeccably balanced finish. This is entirely
fermented and raised in three hundred liter, older casks, and this gives the wine a bit more early
accessibility in comparison to wines such as the Clos de Beaujeu, but it has fine structural
integrity underneath its veneer of accessibility and should age every bit as long as the La Côte.
2015-2035+”. 95 points John Gilman
