Tasting Notes

This is also cool and airy with its classic Gevrey nose of earth, underbrush and humus nuances that add breadth to the ripe mix of both red and dark berry aromas that are trimmed in hints of green tea. There is evident minerality on the detailed, intense and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth on the balanced and beautifully lingering finish. Lovely and this sleek effort should age well.

Score: 91Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, January 2016

Bright medium red. Musky soil tones, smoky minerality, coffee and black pepper on the nose, all lifted by a perfumed floral quality. Tart cranberry and raspberry flavors are complemented by saline minerality, with strong acidity accentuating the impression of inner-mouth tension. Not especially fleshy or broad but boasts terrific energy. The wine's firm tannic spine and strong minerality call for patience. Very 2013 in style.

Score: 90Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, March 2016

Sharply etched raspberry, strawberry and peony notes mark this elegant, tightly wound red. Mouthwatering, with firm tannins gripping the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. 205 cases made.

When to drink: 2020 to 2032
From the vineyard just above Clos de Bèze. Seductive nose. Dried orange-peel nose. Lots there. Rich and only medium weight but great intensity and balance. A little dry on the end. Jancis Robinson
