Tasting Notes

Reduction dominates the fruit today. The dense, muscular and very serious, indeed even brooding big-bodied flavors possess outstanding power and punch along with an abundance of both dry extract and minerality that adds a bit of lift to the youthfully austere, focused and hugely long finale. This is an imposing but graceful wine that is presently exceptionally firm and like the Grands Echézeaux, one that is going to need a great deal of forbearance. Allen Meadows
