About

93-96

"Medium red. Lovely floral lift to the aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and iron, with complicating notes of sweet pastry and passion fruit. A sappy high-wire act, with its intense raspberry fruit lifted by outstanding limestone-borne energy. There's something distinctly cool about this grand cru, which totally saturates the palate without leaving behind any impression of weight. Finishes with outstanding energy and subtle length. I love the soft extraction here. A great example of this singular vineyard, which often strikes me as more Chambolle- than Gevrey-like."

92-95 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"This is aromatically quite similar to the Latricières if perhaps the wet stone component is a bit less prominent and this is also true for the equally pure, cool and restrained flavors that possess a really lovely sense of underlying tension, all wrapped in a firm, classy and gorgeously long finish. This is terrific though once again, it's pointless to buy this if you're not prepared to cellar it at least 8 to 10 years."
