This is a vermeil wine, with a ruby shade that sometimes leans towards garnet and dark purple. Very ripe fruit with a spicy background creates an assorted bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant. The complexity of refined aromas evolves with age to cherry spirits, leather, and fur. A wine to be aged, of course, balancing richness and tannins. It must develop its structure and boldness in the bottle.

A focused, vibrant style, this red delivers black currant, blueberry and toasty oak aromas and flavors, with a hint of tar and mineral. Dense and persistent, delivering an intense core of fruit on the long finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. 48 cases imported.

(vinified with a higher percentage of whole clusters than the Chambolle villages): Moderately saturated bright medium ruby. Richer and riper on the nose, with aromas of black raspberry, menthol and chocolate complicated by sexy soil tones. Densely packed and a bit youthfully medicinal, conveying an almost iodiney minerality in the early going. Today the wine's big, chewy tannins are a bit dominant and dry. Winemaker Vincent Lécheneaut does virtually no pigeages for this wine from deep clay soil as it naturally has a strong tannic spine. This rather tough village wine will probably need five years of aging.
