Here there is a much more reticent and restrained nose and while there is ample wood present, it's better integrated and allows the red and black pinot fruit and earth aromas to shine. The precise and minerally broad-shouldered flavors are supported by a firmly structured tannic spine and good underlying material. This is balanced and admirably long and should reward 7 to 10 years of cellar time. In sum, this is a powerful and admirably persistent Grands Ech but overall, it's not necessarily more interesting than the Clos de Vougeot. Drink to 2017+.
