(2022) From a family domaine, this comes from the higher slopes to the west of the main Côtes de Nuits vineyards, with some fruit from their oldest, 55-year-old vines in the blend. Lovely nose, suffused with dark cherry and some exotic Sandalwood, some gentle forest-floor character too. In the mouth a wine that combines sweet, ripe fruit showing a certain plumpness, with creamy and smooth tannins and pert and juicy acidity to lovely effect. The more exotic spices flit around the finish, which is dry and nicely rustic, giving this solidity and grip.
