(racked and sulfited): Good bright, dark red. Raspberry, spices, flowers and licorice on the scented nose. Dense, sweet and creamy, with a dominant flavor of sappy maraschino cherry. Finishes impressively long and palate-saturating, with ripe tannins and good medicinal reserve. Lachaux noted that this cuvee used to be harder, but is very supple in both 2011 and 2010. Excellent potential.
A little subdued after the Nuits Procès. All tucked in for the future but a bit demanding for the moment. Lots of sleek succulent fruit on the finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030
