Tasting Notes

This Millennium cuvée is very pretty, with a silk-screened label by an Alsatian painter named Babinger. It’s an old-vines cuvée from a fine parcel facing due south, mid-slope. 70/30, Pinot Noir/Chardonnay. It was in small casks for eight months, which had been used once for sixteen months, in Meursault. They stirred the lees. The nose starts out a little metallic, but the palate is quite vinous; the fragrances resolve into seaside-air, yeasty-mealy hedgeflower; the palate has the 1995 spiciness, is intense and sumptuous. —Terry Theise
