(from a .12 ha parcel). A perfumed, spicy and kaleidoscopically layered and spicy nose offers up notes of plum, black cherry, sandalwood and anise. There is a good, pure and restrained mouth feel to the textured, intense and equally layered medium weight plus flavors that exude a fine minerality on the clean, firm, long and impeccably well-balanced finish. I very much like the natural sweetness of the finale as it helps to buffer the youthful asperity of the tannins. Note that like the Bonnes Mares and Clos de Vougeot, this beauty will require plenty of cellaring. (93-95)/2027+
