Dark, bright red. Red raspberry, licorice and menthol on the nose, complicated by notes of bitter chocolate and spices. Large-scaled and broad but less forthcoming today than the Chambolle 1er Cru, with dark raspberry, cherry and spice flavors showing a medicinal reserve and a touch of wildness. Shades toward blacker fruits on the dense, sappy back end, which features substantial ripe tannins and strong saline minerality. This very backward, powerful wine will need a long time to fully express itself.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2040
Healthy, lustrous garnet. Meaty nose with real vigour and some evolution. Velvety and sweetly charming with the density of a grand cru. Maturing very nicely.You could actually enjoy it already. Lovely tannin quality. And great finish.
