Still very pale and not evolved. The rich material and high acidities have not converged yet. The fruit here is not as pristine as those from the likes of Fichet and Montille. — 2 months ago
Cherry, earth, hay and a bit of a mineral thing with pencil lead. Superb palate with a strong acid backbone, a irony touch along with cherry, a very dry and and hard touch on the sides and some harsh tannins that need a bit of aging to resolve. Then comes a long finish with cherry and a touch of bitterness and some nice roundness coming up at last! I love burgundy this good but this one needs a couple of additional years to be at peak. — a year ago
Nose of dark fruit, dark cherries, boysenberries, spices, slightly earthy with some flowery violet hints. The palate is rich, medium plus bodied with the acidity slightly backward without affecting the balance too much, nice fruit on the decent length finish.
Nez de fruits noirs, cerises, mures, épices, terreux et un peu de violettes. La bouche est assez pleine et riche, de puissance moyenne plus, acidité plus en retrait mais sans être pataud, beau fruit en bouche et assez longue finale. 90-91

These wines take a while to open up but once it happens there is some type of magic. The nose is stunning with a mix of red fruits that are fresh and ripe, herbaceous notes, and earthy tones, black tea and minuscule hints of leather. The plate is sheer elegance, the fruits show tart the flowers and herbs sing fresh and the texture is classic burgundy. — 10 months ago
