(vinified with 20% whole clusters; this vineyard is situated above Clos Saint-Denis, but tilted toward the combe; the vines were planted between 1955 and 1968): Saturated deep red. Pungent aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, red licorice and crushed rock, plus an element of peppery spices from the stems. A savory, linear style but also boasts excellent sucrosité buffered by firm minerality. Carrying 13.5% alcohol but the wine's 3.4 pH and deep mineral component give it a light touch and noteworthy inner-mouth tension. This very rich, silky wine, from a vineyard just under a quarry, finishes with suave tannins, excellent breadth and slowly rising length. Will this beauty shut down in bottle?
