Tasting Notes

This cuvée normally includes young-vines from the three Crus, but in 2014 it’s all here, and so this wine has some attitude! A 2-class upgrade, it has an erotic minerality and every type of complexity, animal vegetable and mineral, not to mention herbs, a whole garden of herbs in the late-day sunlight, verbena and anise-hyssop all crammed into a veritable syringe of density— yet with all of 12.7% alc! One of the great wines of 2014. – Terry Theise
