Nose starts out a bit funky, but the horsiness blows off and you have cooling sour cherry, soil tones, mineral, moss, good aroma but it needs to open. Palate is gorgeous. Elegant, textured and so fine. Super juicy and clean, stunningly pure. Long. Lovely elegant structure. Good depth and lovey sappy fruit. Clean as a whistle and impressively pure.

Classic wine in classic vintage. Very earthy and mineral nose. Needs an hour for more fruit to show. What is there is damson. Lovely spice and underbrush. Palate is dense and sweet with lovely wet earthy and terrific acidity. Such a clean wine and great 1er Cru. Has the structure for 10-15 years of improvement. Terrific. Sweet fruit and tannins. Sour cherries on the finish. Complex.

Super fruit and spice. Great wine. Some complexity develops over an hour. Should. Be much better in two years. Bought from fass selections.

Deeper and darker with black berries and black cherries and a lovely green streak that will mellow with age. Tannins.
