(from a single parcel in Petit Maupertuis, just below Grands-Echézeaux): Saturated dark red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal, very reticent nose hints at black cherry, licorice and earth. Very rich, seamless and sweet, conveying an almost a chocolatey quality to its dark cherry, licorice and spice flavors. Finishes rich and long, with serious but sweet building tannins. This wine, too, has close to 14% alcohol.
