description
Continuing the theme of overachieving substance as we arrive to the 1er cru portion of the range, this again offers exceptional value, from a most compelling high/low element, blending a .22 hectare morsel of upper slope les Duresses 1er cru (30 year old vines from the parcel that lends its name to the village itself) with a 50 year old .31 hectare morsel of lower slope les Grands Champs 1er cru. This had a great sense of finesse and class, with a certain dark red fruited sappy ripeness well harmonized with fine but present tannic structure and savory/earthy notes, as well as a substantially noteworthy trame minéral giving further animation and mouth watering salinity. In its sense of completeness and substance, of high toned airy minerality and bass toned earth/structure, this is a silly silly good value play.
