"Sweet Spot. Outstanding. This is also exceptionally floral with its array of violet, lilac and rose petal aromas that add elegance to the markedly spicy dark berry fruit liqueur-suffused nose. The rich, full-bodied, focused and powerful flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration while delivering excellent minerality on the beautifully long, well-balanced and persistent finish. This is both classy and stylish and should copiously reward extended cellaring if desired."
"Their neighbors joke that they aren’t sure how the Entes put food on the table when they observe such minuscule yields. Their most extensive holdings are in the En L’Ormeau clos, located just below the town center of Meursault, which possesses a deep, rich clay soil. They separate their vines here into three cuvées, Meursault A.O.C., “Clos des Ambres,” and “Sève du Clos,” based on the age of the vines and their relative position within the clos. Their holdings also include parcels in the premier crus Meursault La Goutte d’Or and Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts, as well as a small parcel in the enviably-positioned lieu-dit Les Petits Charrons on the slope behind the village. Once the grapes are in the cellar, there is only a restrained use of oak to add subtle structure and texture. Though somewhat under the radar, this modest maestro makes wines that can already compete with the best and just keep getting better with each new vintage. And in our opinion here at KLWM, the Ente’s meticulousness and passion have earned them a place in our “Never Stops Improving” category." -Importer
