A wine for the ages. It’s easy to find the Raphet family’s vines in this legendary grand cru; Gerard’s father, Jean, has a stone marker set on the vineyard’s downslope wall. A spot worthy of a pilgrim’s devotion once you get a sense of the greatness of this truly grand cru. A full, sultry wine with good depth and structure; creamy, pure red berries, incense and smoke fill the middle, with a rich, spicy finish. Another gem for the cellar.
