Tasting Notes

**Note: 100% from vines in Aloxe and all domaine fruit**
Moderate reduction presently renders the nose difficult to evaluate but there is lovely intensity to the strongly mineral-inflected and muscular big-bodied flavors that display fine cut and plenty of punch on the pure and relatively refined finish that delivers flat out superb length. This is potentially excellent though note well that it's going to require plenty of bottle age to realize its full potential.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (63), January 2016

A dense and solid Corton-Charlemagne with hot-stone and dried-apple character. Some pears, too. Full-bodied, dense and polished. Shows layers and strength. Drink now.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2017

A broad, charming white, featuring lemon, baked apple, vanilla, clove and nutmeg flavors, with fine concentration and length. Shows a bright structure and chalky intensity on the slightly tannic finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 3,100 cases made.

Bruce Sanderson, WineSpectator.com, December 2016

Intense and concentrated, this offers ripe yellow fruits, rich apples and a tight mineral texture. It has power, reinforced by subtle wood aging. A flagship for this producer, the wine will age well. Drink from 2020.

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, October 2016

Very close, so little aroma. But the palate has bracing apple and pineapple fruit, a lot of oak and considerable tension. Very rich but spicy and vivid too, with good if not exceptional acidity. Youthful and pungent with a very long, oaky finish.
