Although it's crafted in a modern, fruit-forward style, this wine also manages to preserve the proper structure for this Grand Cru vineyard. The fruits are fresh and delicious, with velvet enveloping the firm tannins. The effect is of a very direct wine, perhaps leaving little for the future, but very good now.
