"(from purchased grapes and wine): Good deep red. Currant, plum, cranberry, mocha and cocoa powder on the nose, lifted by a note of blood orange. Lush on entry, then concentrated and seamless in the mid-palate, with lovely saline complexity and mineral sap to the dark fruit flavors. Finishes with distinctly cool tannins and sneaky persistence. Like the Corton, this very primary wine may get a late bottling." (IWC)

"A classic and exceptionally fresh Vosne nose is replete with a wide variety of Asian spice scents that include anise, clove and cinnamon on the notably ripe cassis and black cherry aromas. There is a highly seductive quality to the mouth coating, velvety and suave middle weight flavors that exude a fine dry extract on the silky yet firm finish. This is not quite as complex as the very best of the Bouchard 1ers but this has its own considerable appeal." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Characteristic cherry nose. This wine reveals a most pleasant velvety palate with a distinctive aromatic aftertaste. A very racy wine. Very good ageing potential.
