DESCRIPTION

(this cuvée has included a new 100-year-old parcel since 2013; vinified with 15% whole clusters and not yet racked): Dark red with a touch of ruby. Knockout nose melds black cherry, dried herbs, licorice, flowers and minerals. Powerful and deep (Rossignol referred to this wine as "a monster" but also described it "the definition of a grand cru") but also juicy and sharply delineated, conveying an element of delicacy. Complex and complete wine, finishing with pronounced minerality and terrific class. The serious tannins are perfectly supported by the wine's material. A great Pommard in the making. 

Steve Tanzer 92-95

This is one of the few wines in the range to exhibit any appreciable amount of wood on the plum liqueur, violet, lilac and earth-suffused nose. The lavishly rich and velvet-textured big-bodied flavors possess focused power and excellent intensity, all wrapped in a palate coating, refreshing and once again hugely long finish. This is very clearly built-to-age yet it's not so imposing that it could not be approached after 6 to 8 years of age. This too is one to consider.   Burghound 92-94
