Burghound, April 2015,
A brooding and reticent nose only grudgingly displays notes of spice, menthol and liqueur-like black cherry aromas. The broad-shouldered flavors are big yet possess a notably more refined mouth feel while conceding nothing in terms of power and punch on the cool, pure and perfectly balanced finish that just seems to go on and on. This is not as big and robust as the Bonnes Mares but it's finer and has that extra dimension of depth and class that a great example of Musigny intrinsically possesses. In short, this is potentially a great wine. Drink 2029+

Bright, full red. Deep aromas and flavors of dark fruits, violet, mocha and truffley underbrush. Fat, sweet and rich; full and sharply delineated, combining subtle earthy nuances and captivating floral high notes. Finishes with serious but suave tannins and terrific energy and length. The acidity of the 2013s will slow down their development in bottle, notes Frèdèric Drouhin. Drink 2026-2040

Dark cherry red. Smells sweetly spiced and gentle. Black cherry. Dry and lithe and ineffably refined. No fat, no excess but nothing is missing. Lithe, sinewy tannins. Such great energy and back to that precision with a firmness that holds the fruit in check for now. rink 2020-2033
