18 JR / 91-94 VM


More protected from cold wind than Clos St-Denis. Less elegant and more powerful than his Clos St-Denis. More Morey, he says. Shaded ruby. Sweet and sumptuous on the nose. Very rich and lively with strong fruity notes – raspberries? Taffeta texture. No monster! ‘It’s still mine’, says winemaker Benoît Stehly. Good mineral finish. Very clean. Jancis Robinson

(the estate owns five plots on a range of different soil, with the vines averaging about 60 years of age): Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of cherry, strawberry and raspberry accented by brown spices; the nose suggests a bigger wine than the Clos Saint-Denis. The large-scaled and deeper in the mouth but tightly wound, with its red fruit flavors complicated by soil-driven notes of menthol, stone, dried flowers, spices and underbrush. A bit more powerful and tannic than the Clos Saint-Denis, this wine will also require a minimum of five or six years of aging upon release. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media
