($231) Good deep red-ruby. Wild, fully ripe nose combines black cherry, violet and game. Wonderfully sweet and lush in the mouth, conveying an impression of lower acidity than the Corbeaux and village example. This is deceptively pliant, complex and open today but it's hard to believe it won't evolve positively in bottle for a decade or more. Finishes juicy, sweet and very long, with an intriguing savory, smoky minerality. This rocky soil really retains heat at night, says Bachelet, which is why the wine often possesses relatively low acidity.
