The winery planted several different Dijon clones a few years back, and decided to bottle them separately in 1999, hence the unwieldy name. This is a young, hard, assertive and distinctly Burgundian effort, ripe and well structured. There is firm, tart, lemony fruit nicely layered with French oak, and nuanced with hazelnuts through the long finish. —P.G.
