"(from a crop level under 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to winemaker Michel Mallard, who added that this holding is still missing about 20% of its vines from the Engel days): Good medium red, a bit less saturated than the Echezeaux. Highly perfumed aromas of plum, raspberry, dried rose, coffee and musky underbrush, complemented by sexy oak tones. Concentrated, sappy and smooth, with redcurrant, mineral, floral and spice flavors refined by burnished oak tones. Lovely energy and lift and fine tannins on the long aftertaste. Finer and more aromatic than the Echezeaux but not bigger."
