A fantastic site completely surrounded by grand crus. It is in a very slight ditch meaning it just doesn’t get the same exposure as its neighbours. A total of 1.53 hectares, with a vine age varying between 15 and 75 years. Closed and reserved with a nuance of white truffle and underlying red and black fruit. While usually the most brooding of all the premier crus, this vintage the wine is looking superbly balanced and delicate considering its power. The palate is wonderfully balanced with fruit and firm yet non-intrusive structure. Jono Hersey, FWC Tasting note: Moderate wood is present on the notably ripe but pretty and even airy aromas of mostly red and dark currant that are sprinkled with floral and spice hints. The supple middle weight flavors are supported by firm and relatively fine-grained tannins that contribute to the nicely textured flavors that are at once dusty yet quite stylish. This too is a bit woody at present but is a wine that should be able to eat its wood with a few years of bottle age. 91 Points. Outstanding. Allen Meadows, Burghound
