Benoît Stehly kicked off the 2018 harvest with his 1.49ha holdings of Clos St Denis, sourced from three parcels. It looks like a smart move, because this has has retained the renowned focus, elegance and transparency of the Grand Cru with racy acidity, some clove and fresh tobacco notes from 30% whole clusters, detailed tannins and intense wild strawberry sweetness. Beguiling stuff.

Cask sample. Compact and blocky in structure, as if pixellated at present and needs time to gain resolution. That's entirely forgivable for a grand cru, and the underlying fruit has a tarry savoury character that bodes well. Patience needed.

Vines between 60 and 70 years old – powerful red fruits with fresh peppery notes and minerality on the nose. Superbly balanced tannins with a light sweetness, an expansive palate of dark berries and cherries opening to a long and elegant acidity, which amplifies the minerality of the terroir. Dry and powerful, the spine of this Clos St Denis provides amazing structure and exciting length on the finish. Will age incredibly well.
