One of the domaine's top wines from a very good plot on the Vosne side of Nuits-St-Georges. It combines the succulence of a Vosne-Romanée with the richness of a Nuits. Good ageing potential. Cellar 10 years and enjoy.
Etienne Grivot states: " As to the style of the 2011 vintage, it didn't produce particularly big wines but they are suave and seductive plus they display their respective terroirs quite clear. This isn't always the case with vintages that are very seductive because the aromas are generally a bit too ripe for the terroir to come through without distortion. The other aspect that I really like about them is that they are very saline in character, which I believe contributes greatly to how refreshing they are to drink. In fact, even though they should age very well, the wines can already be enjoyed for their freshness and energy."

"An expressive nose combines both wood and natural spice elements that add considerable interest to the notably ripe nose cassis, plum and violets. There is excellent richness, size and weight to the very round and suave medium-bodied flavors that possess beautiful depth on the mouth coating finish where the abundant dry extract renders the supporting structure more pliant than it really is. Lovely potential here."

"Bright red. Pungent red berries and minerals on the nose, lifted by a floral note and a hint of pepper. Silky and fine-grained but juicy too; more pliant and extroverted--less wound up--in the mid-palate than the Beaux Monts. Finishes tactile and saline, with noteworthy balance and length. This really spreads out and glistens on the aftertaste....."
