Generous wood is present on the ultra-fresh and incredibly spicy nose that reflects notes of reserved red berries, the sauvage, earth, floral and exotic tea wisps. The mouthfeel of the imposingly constituted and admirably concentrated flavors is one of contrasts as the mid-palate is quite supple yet the powerful, driving, austere and muscular finish is robust, serious and austere. This is jaw droppingly good and somewhat curiously relative to how the two wines typically show at this stage, this is the flashier of the two. We'll see in time though as it's usually the Chambertin that goes into a shell only to emerge 20+ years later. Be that as it may, today this is a genuine 'wow' wine.
