(made 100% from tiny “millerandage” grapes, or shot berries, which give much higher solid to liquid ratios; it is not made every vintage). Discreet wood is presently on the compositionally similar if ever-so-slightly riper nose. There is again excellent intensity and delineation to the delicious and sappy middle weight flavors that are a bit denser though somewhat surprisingly given this wine’s excellent track record, they are no more complex on the firm but not really austere finale. This too is a very good villages that should benefit from a few years of bottle aging. Drink 2026+.’ 91 points. Allen Meadows, Burghound.com.
The nose is a little tighter in the higher tones, but has a wonderful width below. Also a very precise and incisive start. Wide and energetic, mouth-watering too. It’s a different style of energy here that sets it apart from the other wines. I think that my favourite this year is still the Clos Prieur, but this is very close all the same… Excellent wine, perhaps even better with some time. Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report.
