- Tasting Notes
This is also quite fresh with its cool and restrained nose that features mildly phenolic-tinged notes of various white orchard fruit, floral and a whiff of citrus peel. There is excellent richness and volume to the sappy and generously proportioned, indeed even opulent, flavors that possess first-rate power that continues onto the delicious finish where a hint of bitter lemon can be found. This is almost tender and will be a 2015 grand cru that should drink well young if that’s your preference.

Cloudy appearance. Very ripe scents of orange peel, lemon, pear drop and crushed rock; smells solid! Tactile and thick but with integrated lemony acidity leavening the wine’s touch of creamy sweetness and accentuating its dusty rocky texture. Soil-driven, concentrated Bâtard but a bit less wild than usual for this cuvée. One feels the humidity of the soil here. A very classy, penetrating, fine-grained grand cru with a superb acid balance (actually 4.2 grams per liter) and outstanding rising length. An outstanding white Burgundy in the making.
