"Tasting note

This offers a step up in both ripeness and complexity with a deft touch of wood setting off high-toned red berry fruit and earth notes that introduce nicely concentrated flavors that possess good volume on the supple, round but tautly muscled and quite firm and robust finish that displays just enough rusticity to be noticeable.

Note

The blend has changed considerably and is now 70% Ruchots with the balance in Clos Sorbé, Millandes and Charrières

Producer note

Jeremy Seysses described the 2008 vintage as one that had a "great deal of shot berries and this was important for two reasons as it added concentration as well as naturally gave better aeration to the normal-sized bunches. There was a lot of sorting required, both for rot and for under ripe berries. We did a normal vinification of between 10 to 12 days of cuvaison with a relatively high percentage of whole clusters, which ranged from 2/3 to a full 100%. We reduced the amount of new wood slightly though probably not enough to really be detectable in the finished wines. Overall, I am very bullish on the vintage and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people who were influenced by the pre-malo comments." The in-bottle '07s came in about where my ranges suggested that they would and while they are very pretty, and in some cases genuinely excellent, they cannot match the quality of their '08 counterparts when taken as a group.

Drink: 2018+. 90 points"
