(From 2008 Vintage) Energetic, expansive, a grand cru of epic proportions. We were floored by its black raspberry flesh, its sultry rosy perfumes. Arlaud's plot sits on the top of the slope, near Latricières—a placement that gives elegant fruit with a vibrant minerality. Sensationally sultry and deep, the wine shows luscious layers of flavor that are mind-bogglingly complex and utterly delicious.
Burghound"An expressive and airy earth and red fruited nose infused with subtle spice and game notes that precede textured and exceptionally rich mouth coating flavors that are not overly complex at present but they are powerful, intense and long, indeed the length is flat out stunning."
