Abuts Grand Cru Clos Vougeot mid slope. Planted in 1945/1946.

Note: from .50 ha parcel planted in 1946; Les Violettes abuts Clos de Vougeot.

This is the first wine to display any appreciable reduction and it's enough to blur the nuance of what are clearly ripe dark berry aromas. Otherwise, there is very good vibrancy and cut to the delicious medium weight flavors that possess solid mid-palate density before culminating in a rustic, powerful and impressively long and complex finish. Like the Aux Croix, this isn't refined but it is balanced all the same. This is one to look for if you have the patience. 89-92 points, outstanding, top value. - Allen Meadows, The Burghound
