A flinty, mineral-charactered wine, with smoke and toast flavors dominant at this stage. The power and richness are there in the background, while the white fruits fit behind the structure. It’s obviously for the long haul, a powerful, tight wine.
What a powerhouse of flavors: white and yellow fruit, herbs and spicy wood, but still exhibiting some of the finesse and elegance for which this grand cru vineyard is noted. Ripe fruit means that this is not a wine for long aging, but it will certainly give pleasure over the next several years. Imported by Louis Latour.
Intensely ripe wine, with melon and pear flavors, spiced with just the right amount of wood and structured fruit skin tannins. So classy, this is a beautiful wine, boasting the richness of 2009 while still keeping a sense of nervy texture.
