Youthful, gem-like ruby, faded orange rim. A nose of warmth and magnanimity, reminiscent of your grandfather’s study: brick fireplace, spent pipe tobacco, dusty cedar, worn leather chair. Exudes more of its Vosne proximity on the palate: silken, glacé, noble, articulated. A stop-you-in-your-tracks mid-palate dimension. Medium-full body without a hint of astringency. Memorable finish, with soy intimations and a saline minerality. A Chaignots with distinction and transparency. Most of our ’85 premier crus had gone off years ago; these are still going strong. Dr. Georges Mugneret, über alles. Now – 2015.
