The exact opposite of the L'Arlot. Shut down and a bit reductive early on, with the structure standing out. Now, the structure is still there but much more nicely integrated. The fruit is starting to come forward, with strong dark cherries leading the foray. The tannins should integrate a bit more with a few years additional cellaring. From 104 year old vines in Beaune.

I don’t think we did justice to this wine as it took a while to come together in the glass and would have greatly benefited from longer decanting. Superb nonetheless.
