DESCRIPTION

Aromatically speaking this is almost a hypothetical blend of the Frémiets and Caillerets with its perfumed and moderately high-toned red currant nose that unveils notes of spice, stone and violets. The strikingly pure, delineated and energetic middle weight flavors display outstanding precision on the almost pungently mineral-driven, balanced and hugely long finish. This is a classic Taillepieds and while there is some of the hallmark austerity present, it is somewhat less than I'm used to seeing in this wine. A knockout but note that patience will be required. Burghound 92-94 Sweet Spot Outstanding!


Bright full red.  Red fruit aromas are perked up by pepper and spices.  Dense and backward, in a distinctly masculine style.  The pepper and spice flavors are given a penetrating quality by the wine's firm spine of acids and tannins.  Youthfully imploded today but there's superb red fruit intensity here.  Finishes vibrant and long, with slowly expanding fruit and spice flavors.  This should evolve gracefully in bottle. Tanzer 91-93
