(Prieur Jacques Beaune Les Grèves) Medium-plus colour, with flashes of purple. A super, super young nose of faint, creamy creme brulée over dark, almost jellied fruit - it’s rather exciting. In the mouth it’s superbly intense, balanced by gushing, but super acidity. The one down-side (for me) is that the dominant flavours are mainly dark, bitter-chocolate oak. Certainly plenty of power, and the lingering flavours end with fruit rather than oak, so I expect time will suck up most of the wood - if not all those toasted flavours - it might (one day) even taste like Beaune! I’m quite impressed by the gusto here and may add a couple to the cellar.
