Tasting Notes

This has just enough reduction to shave the top notes from the nose where hints of earth and dark berries can still be discerned. Otherwise there is terrific punch, detail and power to the tautly muscular, vibrant and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are supported by very firm tannins on the ever-so-mildly austere and gorgeously persistent finale. As is often the case with this wine, it's both restrained and compact at present but everything is in place such that it should age beautifully. In a word, excellent.

Picked on 29th August along with the Charmes-Chambertin. This part of Mazoyères forms a slight hump overlooking its neighbours, catching the wind which concentrates the grapes, according to Loïc. Deep black purple in colour. The bouquet has fascinating smoky notes, reminiscent of the sun baking the stones, yet with crunchy minerals too. Middle to full body yet really well balanced and the acidity is better integrated than for the Charmes. Tasted: November 2019
