Hints of yellow & green fruit. Nicely full, good acidity and ripe pear flavour in the mid-palate followed by stony flavour that lasts very well. Nice wine.
Cuvée Millerandes. Fresh with a super-intense core of fruit. Plenty of acidity but it has the foil of a rippling width of flavour. Stony fruit in the mid-palate. One critic ordered 6 cases after tasting this – I ordered a more modest one, which was clearly a mistake as they lasted only 2 months – then the domaine was sold out! One of the bourgognes of the vintage.
Medium-plus yellow colour. The nose had plenty of struck match and savoury elements – even intruding on the (quite) big flavours. Initially seemed a little too fat. I decanted and returned after 3 hours. Smooth interesting and fruit driven aromas, the struck match is gone and the balance is better – or maybe my palate is better! It’s a concentrated and ripe impression – high quality.
