- Tasting Notes
There is just enough reduction to knock down the nose though I doubt that it will last for more than a few months as the underlying fruit seems quite ripe. The impressively rich and overtly powerful and full-bodied flavors brim with an abundance of dry extract that confers a wonderfully textured, indeed almost chewy mouth feel onto the palate coating and almost bone dry finish; indeed this is exceptionally dry in the context of the vintage. In a vintage where relatively few truly knockout whites were made, this is one of them.

Slightly hazy due to a recent stirring of the lees. Highly complex nose combines candied lemon, pineapple, menthol, linden tea, ginger and caramel. Thick and seamless in texture and showing a slightly exotic candied quality, but racy acidity gives sharp relief to the intense orange and lemon zest fruit. Really echoes on the gripping finish, showing a whiplash of citrus and saline flavors. These were the latest-picked vines in 2012, along with the Batard and Corton-Charlemagne, but this stunning wine remains just on the right side of surmaturite.
