Brilliant ruby-red. Powerful red/blue fruit, violet, black cardamom and smoky herb aromas show excellent clarity and mineral lift. Fleshy and seamless in texture, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Delivers a suave blend of power and energy and finishes with outstanding clarity, spicy thrust and lingering sweet blue fruit character. JOSH RAYNOLDS, vinous

2 ha (5 acres) in six different parcels, eg Aux Charmes in the west and Corcelette in the north of the cru. Mainly old bush vines – some need replanting.
More expressive than the Regnié at the moment. Darker, riper fruit aroma – more fruity. More juice in the berries from these sites. Same dry finesse in the texture but more rounded and more juicy. There’s a darkness to the fruit that is very elegant. The tannins are dry but supple. Cool, long and savoury. The overwhelming character is still that stony/mineral quality. Long and fresh, but so beautifully paper-dry. Opens to more fruit. JULIA HARDIN MW
