Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .65 ha parcel of very old vines of indeterminate age**
This is actually compositionally similar to the aromatic profile of the Montée de Tonnerre though here the mineral reduction and citrus components are stronger. There is really lovely purity to the punchy, sappy and saline-infused flavors that possess a highly attractive mix of power and refinement, all wrapped in a lemony, driving, even explosive finish that is borderline painfully intense. This beautifully well-balanced effort will require up to a decade to arrive at its peak though it should be approachable young.
