Reductive and tricky to fathom in November 2009. Quite a big oaky note comes out, probably because the fruit is still tight and subdued. There are three barrels, and one is new - quite high-toast? Certainly smoky notes of torrefaction. Texture is there though, and this should come together once the fruit regains the ascendancy. L&S (Dec 2009)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Bright red-ruby. Nose blocked by reduction. Sweet, broad and generous in the mouth, with a suggestion of bitter chocolate, yet at the same time fine-grained and delicate. This very suave wine's red fruit flavors really explode with air. Finishes with serious but supple and broad tannins. Vinified with a solid percentage of whole clusters. Rating: 92-94 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Mar 2010)

Fresh and tense and tight. There is an intensity of vibrant fruit. Bright, tight dark cherry notes. It dances on the palate. It is not the most complex Griotte I have tasted in the vintage, but it is undeniably joyous. It has piquancy, plenty of tight spice, firm, fine grained tannin and a vivacious finish. I like it. Fine +. 2015 Nuits-Saint- Rating: 18.5 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Jan 2010)
