Good bright red. More deeply pitched on the nose than the Echezeaux, conveying wilder scents of red berries, coffee, soy sauce and smoke. Broader and less showy today, displaying a more obvious soil component initially, With aeration, notes of raspberry and strawberry emerged. Today this comes across as more pliant and less taut than the Echezeaux, and it's not clear that it has more density or length. De Villaine notes that the average age of vines here is lower at 35 years and that the final blend includes some fruit from 12-year-old vines.
