(from domaine-owned vines in En Orveaux; like the Clos de Vougeot there are normally two cuvées, one domaine and one négociant). A markedly spicy nose is again not super-fresh but neither are the aromas of plum, violet and Asian-tea dull. The middle weight flavors possess slightly better freshness than the nose while displaying lovely delineation on the stony and lightly austere finish where a hint of bitter cherry arises.
