There is a touch of green tea to the gamey and overtly sauvage aromas of dark berry fruit, plum and floral hints. Like the Teurons there is a really lovely mouth feel to the intense, detailed and refined medium-bodied flavors that possess good if not exceptional volume by the standards of this wine. There is impressive depth and sneaky length to the finish as it almost dies out only to recommence. Good stuff but note that patience will be required. Sweet spot Outstanding.Burghound 92 pts

Medium red. Musky aromas of plum, redcurrant, strawberry, dried flowers, underbrush and spicecake. Juicy and firm-edged, in fact a bit youthfully ungiving, with saline minerality complicating the redcurrant and earth flavors. Not a particularly sweet style owing to its impression of acidity but stylish for Beaune wine. Finishes with dusty tannins and an appealing pomegranate bitterness. (Incidentally, my bottle of the Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot led off with a tangy, fresh nose but was thin and hard on the palate and dry on the finish, showing little in the way of fruit sweetness.)
