The vineyard's southern exposure gives this wine powerful, mature red fruit aromas. Rich and well structured.
This will pair well with most meat dishes and cheeses.
"Good medium red. Perfumed nose offers red cherry, crushed stone, fresh herbs and menthol. Silky and soil-driven, with an underlying rocky character giving the wine noteworthy delicacy. These vines now average at least 35 years of age, notes new winemaker Frederic Barnier.
Barrel Score: 88-91 points
International Wine Cellar
"More moderate though far from invisible wood surrounds notes of menthol and cool cherry aromas slides gracefully into supple, vibrant and attractively rich and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a lovely mouth feel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins. Despite their fine grain the admirably long finish is notably firm and this will require most of a decade to arrive at its peak.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points"
"The 2011 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Couchereaux has a slightly reduced nose at the moment. The palate is tight, again a little tough on the entry with firm tannins, although there is plenty of punchy red berry fruit on the grippy finish. Fine. Drink 2014-2020.
