The 2019 Fleurie Griffe du Marquis is also particularly successful this year, offering up aromas of wild berries, rose petals, orange rind, licorice and sweet soil tones framed by a deftly judged patina from its time in barrel. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's seamless and elegant, concluding with a long, violet-inflected finish.

"The old vine Griffe du Marquis from Alain Coudert is also produced from the eighty year-old vines on the estate. This is the only wine raised in older Burgundy casks, rather than the customary foudres of the region, with the casks ranging from two to eight years of age. The 2019 Griffe comes in listed at fourteen percent octane and delivers a fine, youthful aromatic constellation of black cherries, pomegranate, a bit of grilled meats, woodsmoke, a nice dollop of spices and fresh thyme, a beautifully complex base of soil tones and just a hint of cedar from the older casks. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and ripely tannic, with a superb core of fruit, fine mineral drive and grip, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, complex and very promising finish. This is going to be outstanding once it is ready to drink, but it will demand a bit of cellaring to drink optimally. 2027-2065."
