Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

2 parcels, one on a brown soil in the middle, and the other higher and more white. Roughly 0.75 ha.

A depth of fresh ripe fruit but both supple and subtle above, and very faintly floral. Really mouth-filling, more energy than Taillepieds, a hint less depth of textured flavour. Big finishing, some herb and freshness – a wave of flavour that ends with a nice floral note. Super I but I like Taillepieds even more!


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

(11% vendange entier; from three ages of vines, the oldest of them planted in 1976): Good dark red. Pure, high-pitched, slightly medicinal scents of raspberry, blackberry, licorice and spices, plus hints of herbs and pepper. A very rich, sappy wine with a restrained sweetness and captivating saline minerality to its dark raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Finishes with firm but well-integrated tannins and subtle power and length. This beauty is a bit higher in pH and lower in acidity than the Caillerets, and will probably give pleasure earlier.
