Barrel sample. Hailed. 30% whole bunch. 40% new oak. More protected from cold winds than Clos St-Denis.
Lightish cherry red. An aroma that is restrained but draws you in. Dark-red fruit, peppery, mineral and a little chalky. On the palate, really sinewy and almost but not quite lean, direct and precise and very fresh. The opposite of gourmand but satisfying in a health-promoting way. No fat. Much more in finesse than charm. Very long. (JH)
