Tasting Notes

A powerful, tightly wound wine that benefits from extended ageing. Again, a blend of two sites, totalling just 0.62 hectares of 30 year old vines, combined to elevate beyond the sum of its parts. Les Casse-Têtes is from the heart of the village. It means ‘heads of stone’ evocative of the rocky soils the vines have to contend with, bringing minerality and tension to the blend. Au Murger de Monthelie is on the north-western tip of the villages vineyards before it crosses the border into Volnay. The soil is 80cm of clay overlaying volcanic rocks bringing power and opulence to the blend.

Reviews & Scores

There is a mildly phenolic character (think olive oil) to the orange zest, petrol, pear compote and roasted nut scents. There is even better volume and richness to the medium weight flavors that are even a bit more tightly wound on the stony, bone dry and built-to-age finale. This is perhaps not quite as refined as the Clousots but it makes up for it in sheer punch. A qualitative choice. Outstanding Top value.
