More Information

Gee, this is punching above its weight. Deep, slightly smoky, blackberry, raspberry, mint, spice and positive oak. Medium-bodied,  fleshy and tannic, almost dark and brooding, certainly has this sense of earth/minerality and graphite tannin. Finish is rich in tannin, black tea, and length with a firm pulse. Rolling. In short, bloody good. Perhaps give it a couple of years yet, mind you. Love this. Tasted: Oct 18; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $79; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2020-2030+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

A stunning wine that is revolutionary for the Côte Chalonnaise appellation. You could easily mistake this for a top Côte d'Or wine, even for a Grand Cru. However, this is still very young and needs time until 2020 (at the very least) for the complex licorice, black forest berries and spicy bouquets to develop fully. Deep and concentrated with a lot of tannins, making this suave and silky. 50% whole cluster and great fruit quality have given this a couple of decades of aging potential. Rating: 94 Points; JamesSuckling .com

A pungent nose consists of wood and reductive aromas. Otherwise there is good freshness and verve to the dense and serious medium weight flavors that flash outstanding minerality on the moderately rustic and built-to-age finish. This is very good though note that it will need at least some patience. Drink: 2026+; Issue: 69; Comments: Outstanding Top Value; Rating 90-92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
