Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .15 ha parcel of 47 year old vines**
A very spicy and earthy dark fruit nose that displays beguiling violet and subtle rose petal notes that complement beautifully the rich, full and powerful flavors that are solid but not aggressive as the structure is suave and confers rather a textured and velvety mouth feel to the superbly long, sweet and remarkably precise finish, particularly for such a big wine. And here there is the complexity and sheer depth that the Clos de Vougeot is missing for the present. A classy and harmonious effort.
