Tasting Notes

Pascal has been looking for heightened finesse in this famously statuesque wine and in 2011 he has undoubtedly found it. The purity of the red fruits and the ripeness of the tannins set off perfectly the density of the wine and the iron-rich mineral notes that take over on the finish. This is controlled yet attractive and never overbearing or leaden-footed. Top class. Drink from 2018.

Reviews & Scores

Noticeable wood spice is present on the otherwise bright, pure and very fresh aromas of newly turned earth and a broad array of wild red berries. There is excellent volume and plenty of punch to the structured and firm large-scaled flavours that possess a lovely texture on the saline-infused finish. This is less austere than usual and should amply repay mid to even longer-term aging.
93 Points, Allen Meadows

Deep red with ruby tones. Black cherry and licorice on the nose. Generous, sweet and dense, offering excellent freshness and chewy depth. Finishes broad, sweet and long, with noteworthy finesse of tannins. A very promising vintage for this wine. Arnoux's parcel is contiguous to the Grands-Echezeaux of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, notes Lachaux.
91-94 Points, Stephen Tanzer

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant wine with an intense bouquet of dark cassis and plums with a rich, smooth palate of juicy, ripe blackberry and plum flavours balanced by velvety tannins and a refreshing finish. This wine is delicious now and will age well for a further decade. Drink 2015 – 2024.
