Tasting Notes

Here too strong reduction dominates the nose. By contrast there is fine volume to the sleek yet entirely serious medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a velvety, saline and markedly backward finish where the persistence comes up short. There is a lot of gas present so this is tough to read but given that the supporting tannins appear to be ripe my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt. Drink: 2024+
N.B. from a .07 ha parcel in Cruots

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016

(from 100+-year-old vines, the oldest of the domain, in Les Cruots; Cheurlin vinified with 20% whole clusters, destemming the rest of the fruit by hand): Good deep red. Profound nose combines sappy raspberry, smoky minerals, game, underbrush and dried flowers. Offers superb concentration of fruits and minerals in an utterly seamless package. Wonderfully thick and vibrant, finishing with great energy and lift (these were the first vines picked here in 2014). Very tight in the early going, though--my scoring range may turn out to be overly conservative.
