Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(AM=92-94) - The very pretty nose is quite cool and restrained with its broad-ranging panoply of aromas that include red cherry, violet, lavender and a hint of wood spice. There is very fine volume to the refined, intense and gorgeously textured flavors that possess much better overall depth and lovely persistence. This is a CSD of finesse but make no mistake, it has the underlying material and balance to age for years.
(AG=92-94) The 2017 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has quite an intense nose with ample blackberry and boysenberry fruit, slightly reduced at the moment but that will be addressed by the time of bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berries on the entry, a healthy sprinkle of white pepper and a gentle grip towards the finish that shows more complexity than some of its fellow Grand Crus.
