This Grand Cru Burgundy was opened by Allred. I liked this wine better than he did. I've only had 1 other wine from this producer. 1998 was a mediocre vintage. The vines average 30 years old. Medium red color. Smooth, soft and elegant. Silky tannins. Notes of plums, blue fruit and cherries. Drinking quite well at 20+ years old but wouldn't hold it much longer. 93 points.
