The wines are classic burgundies with good terroir transparencies that should age extremely well. In fact about the only thing that I don't like is the fact that quantities were down from 30 to 50% in our upper level wines." I observed last year that the domaine had seriously outperformed the general quality of the 2011 vintage. Now that the wines are in bottle, and several are revisited below, I stand by that statement as they are terrific and this is true from top to bottom.

Tasting note: A discreet touch of wood sets off the spicy black cherry, cassis and floral aromas that slide gracefully into rich, generous and opulent large-scaled flavors that display both excellent volume and fine phenolic maturity of the structural items, all wrapped in a mouth coating and mildly austere finish. This is every bit as long as the Malconsorts but not quite as deep. That said, there is an abundance of dry extract here and it could match it in time.
