Smoked dark cherries, dried meat and some muddled, herby undertones to the dark chili chocolate and wet stones. Bittersweet with some tart cherries and tight, fine-grained tannins before a medium finish. Drink or hold.

Aromas of rose, sliced strawberry and roasted thyme. Medium-bodied with driving acidity and very nice concentration. Tense tannins are complemented by an array of well-ripened red berries. Thyme, rosemary and black tea come through. Lovely.

Plenty of blackberry, ink and hints of sandalwood. Full body, chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. Some white pepper, too. Structured. Needs time to soften. Drink after 2024.

Savory nose, with iron, dried dates, orange peel, warm spices and sweet roasted sesame. Lovely tension on the palate with powdery tannins. Lots of resolve here, with a tense mid-palate. Long and tangy with a bittersweet echo. Drink now or hold.

[Cellar Selection] "Cellar Selection - A champion of the celebrated Les Clos, this powerful, soul-reaching wine highlights the finesse of grand cru Chablis even in the hottest of vintages. Indisputably massive, unctuous even, it pulsates with yellow-cherry and peach flavors yet remains anchored in steel and breathtaking tension. It’s explosive in fruit now but will gain deeper nuance and complexity with time. Best After 2024."
