All-time Great Vintage
Total production of this wine for the whole world is only 80 cases, an old vine wine, from 45-65 year old vineyards and the wine has it all. Deserves time in the cellar but delicious now with a breathe. If you have not experienced great Burgundy, you have not experienced great wine. Get as much of the 2016’s as you can. Awesome Marchand style, rich and opulent, tannins extremely integrated all silk and satin. Roasted spice, oozing blackberry fruit, silky textured on the palate with meaty layers of black fruits, surprisingly long on the supple finish.
2012 91pts: Shows beautiful purity to the cherry, raspberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors in this silky red. Firms up quickly, and the fruit extends on the lasting aftertaste. Needs time to integrate.
