From the Quenin clan, on the eastern plateau, this kicks off with a dense, compact, savoury and lightly toasted nose, melding very concentrated yet perfumed plum and cherry fruits with rose petals and violets. The palate is very convincing, harmonious, with a minerally grain to it as – I suspect – a reflection of the limestone terroir, with silky fruit, modest texture and sweet black pepper. This is very convincing, very primary (as it should be) but with piles of sweet-and-savoury potential. Elegantly composed, convincing, harmonious and long, this is one of the more promising wines from the grand cru classé ranks. Tasted twice, with consistent findings.
