As always, a benchmark of how a grand cru should be made, reflecting the terroir and rising above the general quality of the 2011s in terms of structure and perceived longevity. Densité plutot que force ("intensity rather than power") says Hervé Tucki. Splendidly tight and full of promise - mineral, long, great persistence in the mouth, and a cloaked floweriness are the shape of things to come, from 2016 and a decade on.
