A discreet touch of wood frames mildly reduced aromas such that I would strongly advise decanting this if you're going to sacrifice a bottle in the interest of "science". There is outstanding delineation and intensity to the refined and pure medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by deceptively pliant tannins on the saline-inflected finish that seems to be constructed from liquid stone, all wrapped in a wonderfully long and pure finish. The reduction aside this is really a lovely effort though note well that ample patience is requisite. Score: 93 Points; Tasted: Jan 2016; Drink: 2028+; Issue: 61; Allen Meadows - burghound.com

The 2013 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru is another that Frédéric was enthusing over as we tasted through the barrel samples. Sure, it has a refined bouquet: strawberry, raspberry preserve, fine minerality and a touch of undergrowth. For me, the palate does not have the complexity as Mugneret-Gibourg’s or even the Charmes- or Mazis-Chambertin. A second barrel shows more energy and vibrancy, the fruit slightly more confit, so let us see how it turns out once in bottle.
