Aromas of graphite, blackberry, mineral and oak spice introduce this complex, rich red. The blackberry note continues on the palate, and there's fruit to cover the dense tannins. Fine length. Best from 2010 through 2017. 440 cases made." (Web only, 2009) 88-90 points and a recommendation from Allen Meadows: "(from three different parcels, all on the Vosne side). More deeply pitched aromas of earth, dark fruit and subtle animale hints are trimmed in wood spice hints that can also be found on the full, intense and sweet flavors that evidence almost no rusticity though the tannic spine is more prominent. This is very Nuits in character yet not four square or tough. Recommended." (Burghound, 01/07) 4 Stars from Decanter magazine: "Spicy nose with bright, ripe raspberries on the palate. Great freshness and ripe, elegant tannins. Long, promising finish. Drink from 2010.
