(from two parcels measuring .59 ha on the Chassagne side, one of which is in the section known as Dents de Chien; Interestingly one of the parcels is planted to an equivalent density of 14,000 vines per ha, notably higher than the usual 10,000). This too is quite leesy and impossible to read today. More interesting are the bigger, rich and more muscular broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb depth and persistence on the equally driving and hugely long finish. This carries its imposing weight effortlessly and while it’s no ballerina, the fine balance and proportions impress me. (92-95)/2029+
