TASTING NOTES

"The 2018 La Grande Rue "Cuvée 1959" Grand Cru, which debuted with the 2014 vintage, comes from a parcel that was originally exchanged with Domaine de la Romanée-Conti that year to complete the two monopoles, the vines having been replanted in 1932. It has an intense, mineral-driven bouquet that is beautifully defined, evoking red cherries, wild strawberry and clementines in an antique glass bowl and touches of wild honey in the background; quite distinctive compared to the regular cuvée. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a lovely seam of acidity. Builds nicely toward a beautifully structured, detailed, persistent finish that distinguishes it from the regular cuvée. Just two barrels produced." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"A slightly more deeply pitched nose is comprised by aromas of plum, violet, lavender, sandalwood and spiced tea. The caressing and seductive yet intense big-bodied flavors possess more volume and just a bit more concentration while flashing excellent power and drive on the beautifully long finish. This is definitely firmer and a bit more complex as well." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 77
