The 2016 Clos Saint Denis Grand Cru is raised in 50% new oak from Hermitage and Remond cooperages and includes 70% whole bunch fruit. It has a very well-defined bouquet with blackberry, briary, pressed flowers and minerals that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, beautifully focused and it manages to retain the elegance and finesse that defines great Clos Saint Denis. You would not call it understated, but its class creeps up on you by stealth rather than brags about it in your face. Drink 2021-2038. –Neal Martin

Note: from a .28 ha parcel of 25+ year old vines in Calouère - the first vintage was 1979
Tasting note: A more elegant though markedly restrained nose features cool and pure aromas of dried flowers, high-toned red and blue pinot fruit and lovely spice nuances. The rich, refined and equally pure middle weight flavors are supple yet precise before culminating in a mineral-driven, firm, dusty and long finish where the supporting tannins are notably fine-grained. A CSD of harmony and refinement that should also age effortlessly. Drink 2028+. –Allen Meadows, Burghound
