Slightly closed on the nose at this stage, with subtle notes of white flowers and candied tropical fruits. On the palate, this is supremely well balanced, with rich, unctuous honeyed fruit, balanced by a touch minerality and a deliciously fresh touch. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
From a parcel of 40-year-old vines in this superb 1er Cru, which borders Musigny, this is better than many Grands Crus. With a lifted and heady nose of rosemary, lavender, crushed raspberry and vanilla, the palate is concentrated, with great balance, texture and length. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
Exuberant on the nose, yet refined, this has notes of yellow plum and raisin, as well as a touch of caramel. On the palate, there are notes of grapefruit citrus and greengage fruit, as well as the more complex notes found in great botrytised wines: toffee, dried fruit and candied peel. An invigorating acidity lends balance and lift and this finishes beautifully long and mineral. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
This is very deep and opaque in appearance, with toasty, black-cherry fruit held in check on the nose. The palate is bold and mouthfilling with a great sense of dimension. There is a serious volume of wonderfully ripe fruit yet with a precision peculiar only to great wines. Layer upon layer of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, awesome power and refinement in one glass – a very intoxicating style with a mineral, terroir-driven vein. Very fine indeed and an undoubted star of the vintage. Part of our latest Fine Wine Parcel.
