Red Burgundy ’16 & ’15: Superb Vintages, Different Styles (Jan 2018)

Bright red-ruby. At once more complex and more precise on the nose than the Roncière, offering aromas of blackberry, loganberry, elderberry, violet and dusty stone but none of the herbal or menthol notes this vineyard often displays. Sweet, ripe and pliant; fuller-bodied than the Roncière but given shape by harmonious acidity. Finishes with horizontal, fine-grained tannins and excellent persistence. A lovely showing today.
