Tasting Note:

So serious and so complete. A solid structure padded out with sufficient flesh. Generous fruit with a firm, focusing structure. Crispy notes of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and cool earth. A wine for laying down but so harmonious and accomplished, not a hair out of place. A clay-dominated, south-west exposed vineyard that faces the river so it has a very windy micro climate despite it not being particularly high, 240 metres altitude. Ageing is the same as for the other crus, 2 years in salvonian oak casks, but is kept an extra year in bottle before release.
