Jean-Claude says this wine, sourced from lieux-dits Beaux Fougets (clay soils) and Bons Feuvres (iron-rich soils) on the Pommard side of Beaune, always shows aromas of "cerises noires" (black cherries).  The 2022 has a bright red/garnet robe. The nose is super-pretty with pure, very floral aromas with notes of violet, black cherry and ripe black raspberry. The palate is beautifully textured, chalky and sapid, with red and black fruits (there's that black cherry!) but with lovely lightness and balance with savory herbal notes, and a brooding earthiness beneath the ripe, exuberant fruit. This showed a bit lighter than the "Mariages" and "Prevoles" but in a delightful and elegant way  - give this a bit of aeration and it will be a very beautiful bottle, served a bit cool, with coq au vin or perhaps braised duck legs. Lovely wine!
