93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008

($85; includes fruit that was crushed by Morlet's children; aging in 500-liter puncheons) Medium red. Less fruity and high-toned on the nose than the Coteaux Nobles, but with good purity to its reticent flavors of raspberry, cherry and graphite. Rich in the mouth, with the red fruit flavors complicated by a sweet suggestion of blond tobacco. Ultimately rounder, thicker and more concentrated than the Coteaux Nobles, and sweeter on the finish. But this also has more grip and really fills the retronasal passage with perfume.

The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
