- Tasting Notes
Here the expressive nose is almost as elegant and even spicier with its dark pinot fruit, sandalwood and floral-scented aromas. There is the same lovely texture to the vibrant medium weight flavors that possess admirable mid-palate concentration before terminating in a palate coating, youthfully austere and firmly structured finish. This will clearly need plenty of cellar time to soften the firm tannic spine yet it should be approachable after only 5 to 7 years.

Healthy deep red. Raspberry, mocha and flinty minerality on the nose. Boasts a lovely combination of opulence and energy in the mouth, with dark raspberry and mineral flavors lifted by dried flowers and spices. I would have picked this very perfumed wine blind as a Côte de Nuits. Finishes with noteworthy length and floral lift. An excellent showing today.
