Tasting notes by Laurent Michelet « Burgundia Œnologie »
Harvested on September 20th, grapes in perfect health, vatted for 16 days with punching downtwice a day.
Aged for 22 months in oak barrels.
A beautiful bright garnet colour.
The nose is characterised by fairly exotic aromas: orange zest, liquorice, sandalwood, vanilla discreet in the background. A "noble" herbal accent and a woody touch round out this already complex bouquet.
As often in this less stony terroir, the mouth is warm, sunny, sweet and fruity with no aftertaste. The tasting exhibits a beautiful harmony. The tannins are well balanced, with their sweetness helping to quickly establish the body. Yet they continue to develop over time and bring out a certain firmness expected in a Premier Cru.
Very good length with touches of sweetness and patina redolent of pastries or damson tarts.
