The 2015 Red Burgundies: You Are So Going To Want Them (Jan 2017)

(there’s just a single new barrel of this juice, which was vinified entirely with whole clusters): Bright ruby-red. Explosive wild aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, kirsch, leather, game and violet, accented by a suggestion of peppery François Frères oak. A thick, dense elixir in the mouth, without any heaviness or hard edges but still a bit reduced. Finishes wonderfully dense and suave, with considerable dusty tannins and a slowly building whiplash of flavor. Less demonstrative in the early going than the other grand crus in this cellar but built for a long and glorious evolution in bottle.
