Tasting Notes

**Note: from 3 separate parcels that aggregate .33 ha**
There is enough reduction present to push what appears to be ripe and mildly exotic yellow fruit aromas to the background. The big-bodied, powerful and solidly concentrated medium weight plus flavors possess notably better mid-palate density before terminating in a balanced and impressively persistent finish. Note that my score offers the benefit of the doubt that this will develop more depth over the next decade as it's presently less complex than either the Bâtard or the Montrachet. However the underlying material appears to be present such that this enhanced level of depth can develop.
