Tasting Notes and Scores

Neal Martin

The 2013 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a succinct nose, more introverted than the Bonnes-Mares at the moment, a little earthier perhaps, gradually unfurling with touches of iris, potpourri and rose petals. The palate is underpinned by succulent ripe tannin, very fine acidity and decidedly linear towards the finish, but extraordinarily long in the mouth with tangible mineralité. There is enormous potential locked up in this Musigny that deserves at least a decade in the cellar. One of the wines of the vintage? Quite possibly. -, January 2016

Allen Meadows

This is also quite aromatically restrained with its cool, airy and extraordinarily complex nose that features notes of red raspberry, black cherry, violet, rose petal, Asian-style spices, in particular cinnamon and anise plus a hint of orange pekoe tea. There is superb concentration to the intensely stony and well-delineated broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with palate soaking dry extract that helps to buffer that imposingly powerful, tautly muscular and massively long and youthfully austere finish. This is breathtaking in just how much power and intensity it packs yet there isn't a hair out of place. In a word, 'wow'! Drink: 2033+ (January 2016).
