The nose is quite different to what I remember of the Chaignots – different vines so a good thing – certainly higher toned though perhaps a little more diffuse because of that. This is quite full, with plenty of tannin – yet the fruit comes through very well indeed – super-engaging personality. I think this excellent.

A very nice, complex red fruit nose with hints of wood and vanilla. Fuller, silkier, more concentrated. Tannin with faint grain. Good dimension and length. Very good wine.

Medium-plus cherry-red. High-tones underpinned with medium-toast oak. Lots of dark fruit against plenty of structure. A wine with lots of interest and needing some cellar time – seems just a little shorter than some.
