TASTING NOTES

"The 2016 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a clean and pure bouquet with ample smoke-tinged blackberry and raspberry fruit, controlled and focused, the mineral scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, plenty of dusky red fruit laced with graphite, although it deserves more complexity and detail to come through on the finish. That may come with time. It is not up there with the outstanding 2015 but it is still extremely fine." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"An exuberantly spicy, fresh and ripe nose speaks of red berry fruit liqueur, plum, anise and clove plus discreet mineral nuances that are set off by enough wood to warrant mentioning. The powerful and sleekly muscular flavors are quite firm yet there is a certain generosity that renders the mouth feel somewhat finer than that of the Clos de la Roche on the gorgeously persistent finish. It's rare that a Clos St. Denis is more structured than a Clos de la Roche (when made by the same winemaker) but that is the case here." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 70

"Healthy medium red. Pristine aromas of cherry, rose petal, red licorice and crushed stone. Compellingly savory, sharply delineated wine with serious power--even a bit youthfully aggressive for Clos Saint-Denis. Firm acidity and a solid stony underpinning give this wine a seriously penetrating quality, with its juicy flavors of crunchy red fruits, spices, minerals and flavors conveying razor-sharp focus. A real essence of 2016 in its combination of aromatic lift, definition and delicacy, this compelling Clos Saint-Denis finishes with superb length and thrust." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Mid cherry. I am sure there is plenty of oak influence here but the fruit intensity holds its own. Dark fruit combined with oak sweetness on the palate but overall the balance between fruit and oak is better than on the Clos de la Roche. Firm and smooth on the palate. Has both depth and length as well as a promising future." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
