|Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits
A kaleidoscopically spicy nose combines notes of both red and dark berries along with plenty of floral, tea and wood elements. There is superb richness to the mouth coating and tautly muscular large-scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract while still managing to retain really lovely detail on the impressively complex and hugely persistent finish where the only minor nit is a touch of warmth. This robust if not necessary elegant Musigny should reward up to three decades of cellar time and once again, it's a wine that is going to need it.
Two barrels made, half whole bunches. Like Les Amoureuses, this has only a medium concentrated colour. The stems give some briary touches, both on the nose and in the mouth, but the final flavours are quite superb if very undeveloped in detail yet, except in the persistence.
