  • The Wine Advocate
  • Ready, but will improve


It is easy to underestimate this wine. In its youth it can be explosive with luscious, expansive aromatics, just as now; but the palate tells a different story, which is tight, locked and uncommunicative  Ebut that just sets things up for the future. This is a very special terroir, tucked under the wall of the Clos itself, and its wines are made to age. Drink 2020-2030.
