Here the aromatic profile is completely different because while this too is on the generously oaked side, the spicy red, blue, black and violet aromas are reserved to the point of being reluctant and the big, focused, powerful and extremely rich flavors are also decidedly tight and not particularly forthcoming yet the underlying material is strikingly good, all wrapped in a youthfully austere but incredibly long finish. This is extremely promising and while it's less massive than the Clos de Vougeot, it's both finer and very sophisticated. If you can find it, buy it.
