Description

This is very much like the Grandes Ruchottes in that the nose is reticent to the point of being almost dumb and even aggressive swirling reveals very little. By contrast the big-bodied and tautly muscular flavors possess superb mid-palate density along with terrific intensity that continues onto the palate coating and massively long finish. This is nothing short of brilliant and could very well be the Batard of the vintage. Note well however that plenty of patience will be required.

Pale yellow. Extremely unforthcoming on the nose, displaying a peppery quality that carries through the wine. Densely packed and powerful, with its fat nicely leavened by brisk pineappley acidity. Pungent white pepper on the tactile, youthfully tough finish. Right now the Dents de Chien seems more complex and complete but this wine boasts excellent cut.
