Jasper Morris – 93
This also is reductive with a slight dill pickle character, underneath which there appears to be a wealth of fruit. The wine changes in the glass, taking on significantly more depth. In fact, this becomes spectacular with a major weight of fruit, defining the back and a superb finish. Ripe cherries with a briary note.
Burghound – 90-93
Notes of reduction and wood are all that are discernible today. By contrast there is more volume and mid-palate density as well as more minerality and muscle to the broad-shouldered flavors that conclude in a velvety and firm but not especially austere finish.
Decanter – 95
Part of Thibault Liger-Belair’s range since 2005, this combines fruit from clay and mostly limestone soils. It’s a very sweet, intense, Chambolle-Musigny-meets-Corton style that shows the influence of its Côte de Nuits-based winemaker. Deftly oaked, it’s a fine, textured grand cru with filigree tannins and alluring fruit sweetness.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2030
