Musigny grand cru:

“The 2018 Musigny Grand Cru is de-stemmed by hand and matured in a new, custom-made barrel that was this year approximately 380 liters. It has a fragrant bouquet of vibrant red cherries, crushed strawberry, cedar and allspice; a strong oyster shell influence comes through with aeration. The harmonious, medium-bodied palate offers supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and the sensual, silky-smooth finish lingers for over a minute in the mouth. Although this will age long-term, it will be broachable young. Divine.” 97-99 pts

Mazoyères-Chambertin grand cru:

“The 2018 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru is 100% de-stemmed and raised in one-third new oak. It has an expressive, very floral bouquet, with iris and violet aromas infusing the red cherry and strawberry fruit and gaining intensity with aeration. The elegant, harmonious palate is well balanced, precise and very persistent, a touch of spice lengthening the finish. Superb.” 95-96 pts
