(production here was 42 hectoliters per hectare, vs. an average of 27 for the estate's vines in Chambolle-Musigny; vinified with 40% whole clusters): Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Deep but youthfully subdued scents of dark raspberry, flint and mocha, lifted by a rose petal topnote. A fairly large-scaled, dense wine, and also a step up in intensity and inner-mouth energy from the Charmes, with its flavors of raspberry, cherry, flinty minerality and earth accented by flowers and spices. The longest and most floral of these young 2015s, finishing with very firm tannins that spread out to lightly dust the palate. This wine has the spine to support a slow and graceful evolution in bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2038
