(from 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières). This is sufficiently reduced that it presently masks the fruit and if you’re tempted to try a bottle in its youth I would strongly advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is outstanding density to the focused and powerful middle weight plus flavors that stain the palate with dry extract that also helps to buffer the intensely mineral-driven finale that just goes on for minutes. This is flat out brilliant though note that it will not be an early drinker. In sum, this is a genuine ‘wow’ wine. 95/2026+
