As is also usually the case, this is more aromatically elegant than the Epenots with its relatively high-toned and intensely floral-suffused nose of essence of red currant, cherry and soft earth scents that are trimmed in just enough wood to warrant mentioning. There is both excellent volume and focused power to the driving, muscular and intensely mineral-driven finish that exhibits terrific persistence. This is very impressive and should age effortlessly for years to come yet it is not so rigid that it couldn't be approached after 6 to 8 years.   Burghound 93 Sweet Spot Outstanding!

Producer note: Jean-Pierre Charlot described 2015 quite simply by observing that "everything was easy basically from start to finish. The season was hot and dry with basically no disease pressure to speak of, which means that we made many fewer treatments and other than the vines suffering from a bit of hydric stress in July, it was pretty much stress-free. I chose to begin picking on the 5th of September and the fruit was incredibly clean. We sorted but in the end if we threw out 1% of the crop I would be surprised. Moreover the fruit was exceptionally ripe without being roasted and for the first time in my career, and I've been doing this for a very long time now, I didn't chaptalize even one cuvée. The vinifications were easy as well as there wasn't much to do except watch as the colors and extractions basically happened by themselves due to the very thick skins. When you consider everything together, which is to say vineyard work, harvest and vinification, 2015 is about as easy a vintage as I can imagine having." Not surprisingly the results are consistent with Charlot's comments as the wines reflect the absence of problems as they are excellent.
