info/source Cuis 1er Cru. Two crucial things to understand: one, the ‘vintage’
indicated in the reserve wine is actually the non-vintage blend
of that year, meaning it, too, has a multitude of years in it,
and two, the reserve wines are kept on the lees in MAGNUMS,
not in tank.

Tasting Notes

Didier calls the magnum “The best value of my domain,” and he’s right. (73%) 2011, with the reserve years of 2010, ’09, ’07 and ’06; what’s good in here is very good. —Terry Theise
