Scores and tasting notes


The 2015 Clos Saint-Denis Très Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a very elegant and stylish bouquet with red cherry, crushed strawberry and bergamot scents the unfurl in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe dark cherries, raspberry and cranberry fruit, quite pointed acidity but with good balance on the structured, lightly spiced finish. This was showing better than several other grand crus at the time of tasting from barrel.
