Tightly-wound and still young. Lots of cranberry/pomegranate fruit in the nose. There’s also lots of P-V powdered limestone minerality. It’s beautifully balanced. Soft, nice acids. This will age slowly and improve over the next several years. It’s not the sultry, musky style of Burg, but is really well done in its nervous style.

Bright, buoyant nose. Big 15 sunshine and sappy macerated late season cherries, earth, forest floor, cherry cough syrup. Ripe. Palate is ripe with great acidity and cut. Very accessible for this cuvee which usually needs years. Clean, fresh and very pure with superb balance. Long finish with some velvety tannins. Great now but will improve tremendously in the next 2-5 years and hang on for 10 more.

Big fruit but also really really subtle with spice and earth. Most open young Fichots I've ever had aromatically. Palate is also deep and ripe, but with typical Fichots tannins. Yet they are so ripe. Big boy. So juicy. A bit clipped on the finish. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Sweet fruit and this is also somewhat accessible on the palate. Delicious.
