DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 91-94 “Sweet Spot. Outstanding.”

“This is the first wine to display overtly generous wood and it fights somewhat with the fresh and cool aromas of red and dark currants, violet, earth and ample sauvage character. The dense, serious and well-muscled big-bodied flavors possess good minerality as well as plenty of sappy dry extract before terminating in a very firm and somewhat rustic and austere finale. Again, patience.”

 

Vinous Media (Stephen Tanzer) 91-93

“Dark red-ruby. Very precise aromas of dark berries and smoky minerality convey a stronger impression of energy than the Amoureuses. In a distinctly savory, dark style, showing more smoky minerality than easygoing fruit today. This rather clenched, solidly structured wine finishes with big but fine-grained tannins. Erwan Faiveley notes that this northeast-facing plot was favored by the dry, warm weather in 2015.”
