(from a .72 ha parcel on the Vosne side in the middle against the wall). A completely different nose presents itself here as the earth element is much more pronounced on the exceptionally fresh dark berry fruit, floral and humus suffused scents. There is fine concentration to the powerful, tautly muscular and strikingly intense broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped by ripe structural elements and plenty of palate coating dry extract. There is superb length on the youthfully austere and very firm finish that makes it quite clear that plenty of patience will be required. 94/2027+
