Note that while the label just says 1er Cru, without a vineyard designation, the cork suggests it’s an organically-grown wine from Les Fichots.
Whatever it is, at 7 years of age it is still very very tight and young. Nose is a beautiful combo of sultry, just ripe cherry sap and limestone-flecked moist earth, with just a bit of baking spices. But in the mouth it is lean, right, and crisp. Mostly cracked limestone minerality and a bit of tart cherry. Mouthpuckering acids and tannins. This is built for the long haul and I took it on too short a trip. The 9.0 is based on potential, not current pleasure. — 5 hours ago
Drank this 1999 vintage the other day in a webinar tasting on Burgundy organised by 67PM and Jasper Morris. Nice and well rounded with ample acidity and sufficient fruit although a bit short perhaps — a month ago
