Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 95

Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose offers strawberry, blueberry, musky herbs and brown spices, with an almost liqueur-like sweetness. Wonderfully sweet and plush, with a bottomless quality to its fruit. This is amazingly expressive today, but it’s hard to imagine that this wine won’t shut down within the next year or two. An outstanding vintage for this cuvee, finishing with great length and lift. Half of these vines were planted in 1981 and 1987, while the rest are considerably older. Mugnier has never liked these latter clones, but notes that they continue to improve with age. [Stephen Tanzer, 03/01/2008]

JancisRobinson.com – 17.0

Quite different from the Fuées – less obviously fruity. Fine and delicately fruity. Less earthy than some Bonnes Mares – more mineral with a certain chalkiness on the finish. His parcel has both red and white soils. Finer than many – very fine boned indeed in fact. [09/08/2007]

Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028
