A ripe, red berry-fruit flavored wine, highlighted with sweet cherries. At this young stage, it shows more fruit than structure. Tannins are here, likely to flesh out the wine as it develops. For the moment, enjoy the great swathes of sweet fruit.
Firm, dark tannins with solid black fruit flavors. It has structure followed by lively acidity that lends freshness, with a final beautiful black cherry character. It promises aging potential, proof of the quality of the vineyard in a cooler year.
Structured and fruity, this has plenty of minerality to pair with the crisp citrus flavor. The wood influence gives it extra depth, while the crispness is preserved by a final steely thrust. This structured wine should age for four years or more
Quite closed at this stage, this is a full wine with tight acidity and a crisp minerally texture. White flower and spice notes set off the lively character of this lemon- and pineapple-flavored selection. This is worth keeping for 4–5 years.
Exemplary in all areas, from the smoke, mushroom and berry nose to the exotic undertones of island spice and fine oak supporting vibrant raspberry fruit. It’s one of those wines that’s a pure pleasure to drink, and it’s ready out of the gate. For very good Burgundy that clicks on all cylinders, this is it.
Mineral and initially austere, this is a reticent wine. The red berry fruits are there, but they are packed inside dry tannins. Arching over these elements is an austerity that needs time to break through. It’s obviously a wine that needs aging, as it’s not giving much away at the moment.
Rich fruit, layered with acidity, stars in a wine that is dense, very much a product of the powerful 2005 vintage. With the concentrated tannins, this is showing that it needs to age, but already the sweet fruits are opulent and soft.
