(the crop level here was a full 42 hectoliters per hectare): Moderately saturated medium red. Very ripe but reticent aromas of black cherry, dark plum, licorice and minerals. A bit more masculine and strict than the Les Evocelles (this wine is from clay soil, while the Evocelles is planted on hard rock) and the only one of these '16s to show any evidence of reduction. Finishes with a firm spine of tannins and a subtle salty character. A rather powerful wine from three parcels, the oldest planted in the 1920s and the youngest following the 1985 frost. Tasted January 2018, Vinous (91-93) Points Stephen Tanzer
