Good bright red. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, mint and bitter chocolate. Sweet, sappy and stuffed with fruit; a distinct small-berry character gives this wine an impression of power. Saline, medicinal wine with a long, youthfully tight finish. Solid tannins give this premier cru a firm structure for aging. There was a high percentage of millerandage here, said Pascal Lachaux, as with his Suchots and Reignots.
Quite raw on the nose and big and bold and very fruity. Hard on the end.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2024
