Description

Attractive, medium-deep purple in colour, this has a backward, highly concentrated nose, with the detail still to come. There is dark fruit, some spice, all really built around the concentration of fruit, which just stretches out in endless fashion. Very tight. The aftertaste is completely magisterial and at last the detail of the fruit begins to come out, with some blueberry notes. A little moment of glory! Drink 2025-2040.
Jasper Morris MW, Wine Buyer

Nicolas and David Rossignol report a healthy crop in quality and quantity, though a little reduced in the Grands Crus. They began on 7th September, using around 50 percent whole bunches, and avoided any punching down during vinification as there was no need to search for extraction, preferring a daily pumping-over and aeration. As ever there is only a modest use of new oak and sulphur levels are kept low. They have made unquestionably brilliant wines this year.
