An elegant, fresh and almost airy nose consists of various dark berry scents that include black cherry and raspberry with pretty floral top notes. There is once again fine volume and good precision to the tautly muscular and mineral-inflected flavors that deliver sneaky good length on the robust and ever-so-slightly rustic finale that is, while firm, actually a bit less structured than is typical for this wine.

The Fine Wine Review
The best was saved for last. This outstanding Clos des Chênes displays elegance, even within the context of this elegant vintage, but it also has the power and tension of Clos des Chênes, as will as some fullness. There’s plenty of dark berry fruit and minerality, but also tannins lurking beneath.
