Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru

Lots of violets on the nose. This wine now has so much more class than before, following all the vineyard

improvements. Terrific coffee finish. So juicy and so fresh. In 2009, from magnum, it has excellent colour and a really spicy, "oriental" nose, with a whiff of cherry liqueur. Dry spices in character, with a touch of turmeric. Real richness on the middle palate, but drier tannins on the finish than in 2005. Remains sensual, though with a sign-off that is "Cistercian"! Rich leather and liquorice finish. It really shows its terroir. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
