Tasting Notes:
The wine shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and purple flowers. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in 25% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla, toast, and baking spices.

Wine Production Notes:
The grapes are destemmed and maceration à froid usually lasts just a day or two. The alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous and malolactic fermentation occurs in barrel. Depending on the vintage, the proportion of new oak is around 25% for the village appellations.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"Macerated cherry and medicinal herb aromas and flavors highlight this compact red. A bit surly on the finish now, but the fruit shines through on the aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,360 cases made, 295 cases imported." — BS (Web Only - 2019)

88-91 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A more elegant and really quite pretty nose offers up a ripe and fresh blend of plum, dark cherry and spice, all of which is trimmed in subtle wood. The generous, fleshy and very round medium-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive mid-palate mouthfeel while exhibiting good length on the delicious finale that also flashes a touch of youthful austere." - (Jan 15, 2018)

88-91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(made from 12 parcels encompassing 7 different terroirs, according to Grivot): Bright, dark red. Aromas of black cherry and cocoa powder. Juicy and energetic, showing lovely inner-mouth lift and refinement to its flavors of black fruits, licorice, violet and cocoa powder. Quite tightly wound on the sappy back end, spreading out subtly and leaving behind vibrant note of spices and black pepper."- Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2018)
