Very rich and lively and round. Full of life and richness. Very gorgeous.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2048

“The 2015 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru was a bit more aromatically reserved, opening in the glass with notes of strawberry, briary berries, rose petal and subtle forest floor. On the palate, the wine is beautifully complete, with superb depth and dimension, lovely purity of fruit, satiny tannins that caress the mouth and a long, precise finish. It’s hard to choose between this and the stunning Clos de la Roche, but while my bias is for the Clos Saint-Denis, my marginal preference in 2015 is for the former.”
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2060
Bright, dark red. Perfumed but reticent aromas of raspberry and rose petal. Very pure but tightly wound, showing more red fruit lift than the Clos de la Roche but less showy today. A darker note of medicinal black cherry contributes to this young wine’s serious mien. Less thick than the Clos de la Roche but still very 2015 in character. Finishes very long and floral, with firm but suave tannins. This wine calls for patience but I would not be surprised if it gave pleasure earlier than the Clos de la Roche.
