Decanter – 93
This wine is sourced from an old-vine parcel that was planted in 1954 in the Tête du Clos climat in the upper part of Morgeot, close to La Romanée. It shares some of the latter premier cru’s chalky freshness, underpinning a palate that’s broad and leesy with notes of butter, beeswax and subtle 10% new wood.
Burghound – 91-93
An overtly floral nose blends notes of quinine with those of honeysuckle, spice, citrus and a whisper of the exotic. There is more volume and powerful if a bit less refinement to the imposingly scaled flavors that possess a seductively textured mid-palate that contrasts somewhat with the bitter lemon-inflected finish. This too is really very good and a wine that should amply repay extended cellaring.
