Full red-ruby. Roasted aromas of game, tar, iris and tobacco. Supple and thick on the palate, with an intriguing smoky/vegetal/autumnal aspect that reminded me of Clos des Lambrays. Comes across as considerably richer than the DRC '97 Grands-Echezeaux, but this also finishes with a slight dry edge.
Pale cherry red. Lovely autumnal notes with bitter cherr fruit on the nose. Some acidity and a real kick on the palate. Lifted, flirtatious and already drinking well.
Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022
