this fruit was picked at 13% potential alcohol and chaptalized 0. 3% to prolong the fermentation; the crop level was 30 hectoliters per hectare, as there was practically no hail here, according to Duvivier): Healthy medium red. Brooding, rather wild aromas of black fruits, spices, mint and espresso. Seriously rich, tactile and deep, conveying a strong impression of energy to the dark raspberry, earth and saline mineral flavors. No rough edges here, but the wine's elements still need more élevage to harmonize. Duvivier noted that this premier cru will be bottled last, probably in May. The strongly saline, very long finish leaves the salivary glands humming. Tanzer/Vinous Media 92-94

Once again the wood treatment is quite unobtrusive on the understated nose that grudgingly reveals cool and ultra-pure aromas of violet, Asian-style tea, spice and a broad mélange of wild red berries. Like those of the Champans the superbly well-detailed medium weight flavors are intensely stony with the same sleek and polished palate feel that carries over to the impeccably well-balanced and hugely persistent finale. This isn't quite as concentrated but it is indisputably more complete. Burghound 92-95 Don't Miss Outstanding!
