Winemaker's Notes

Superripe nose dominated by chocolatey oak. Sweet and lush in the mouth, with flavors of blackberry, game and leather. Seems finer-grained than the Chambertin but also more linear and less vibrant. But impressively long on the firmly tannic finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Brilliant red and very terroir-driven. Wild berry, black cherry, mineral and spice notes mingle with a vibrant structure and dense tannins in this electric '03 Burgundy. There's an elegance and an intensity, yet it never gets overbearing and everything seems in the right proportion for a long future. Best from 2008 through 2030. 100 cases made."
98 Points

"This too evidences quite a bit of wood spice that frames a more elegant and finer nose with flavors that are not quite as dense as those of the immense Chambertin but here everything is in even finer balance, especially on the powerful and explosive, slightly dry finish where the densely but finely structured flavors go on and on. This is a choice really between two exceptionally dramatic and fine efforts. Score: 92-94."
94 Points

"Saturated ruby-red. Currant, saddle leather and smoked meat on the nose. Superconcentrated and fresh, in a distinctly firm, vibrant style for the year, even a tad hard. Initially this rather closed wine's firm tannins cut off its fruit. With time in the glass, though, the tannins seem to arrive later and come off as more even. Very long on the aftertaste."
