Tasting Notes

The 2016 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a clean and pure bouquet with ample smoke-tinged blackberry and raspberry fruit, controlled and focused, the mineral scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, plenty of dusky red fruit laced with graphite, although it deserves more complexity and detail to come through on the finish. That may come with time. It is not up there with the outstanding 2015 but it is still extremely fine.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (234), December 2017

Mid cherry. I am sure there is plenty of oak influence here but the fruit intensity holds its own. Dark fruit combined with oak sweetness on the palate but overall the balance between fruit and oak is better than on the Clos de la Roche. Firm and smooth on the palate. Has both depth and length as well as a promising future.
