Powerful and structured, this wine is made from fruit sourced from a vineyard that is almost completely surrounded by some of Burgundy's greatest grand crus. The wine is juicy, and its ripe fruits pour through the dense tannins, making this feel balanced already, but this is a wine for long-term aging.
