Rated 94 pts by Allen Meadows ("Burghound"), this is a lovely example of Burgundy's famous 1978 vintage.

AM "Still medium ruby with no bricking at all in evidence. Stunningly complex with perfumed, intense and superbly elegant spice and earth aromas blending seamlessly into marvelously sweet, round, velvety and pure flavors that offer impeccable balance and plenty of cassis-infused extract on the extraordinarily long finish. This continued to develop for some two hours in the glass and bottles in this condition will last another 20 years without difficulty. A real stunner of a wine."
