John Gilman "View from the Cellar"
The Guyon family’s parcel in les Vergelesses lost thirty percent of its crop from the hail and this too is quite structured out of the blocks. The bouquet is a blend of black cherries, dark berries, bonfires, dark chocolate, fresh thyme and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is fullbodied, focus and ripely tannic, with a good core, fine soil signature and a long, tangy finish that also closes with a touch of pepperiness. This may well end up just fine with bottle age, but it is a bit bound up in its structure today and will need to be left alone in a corner of the cellar for at least the next five years. 2020-2045. 87-89.
