Tasting Notes

**Note: from the Chassagne side**
This is not quite as elegant as the BBM though it's slightly more complex with its notably floral-suffused nose of various white orchard fruit, citrus and broad-ranging spice elements. There is impressive power and weight to the big-bodied flavors that also possess outstanding mid-palate concentration as well as superb depth and length on the once again impeccably well-balanced finish. This is indisputably terrific though note well that it's going to need plenty of time in a cool cellar.

92/95
Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (63), June 2016

(13.1% alcohol): Bright yellow. Pure, scented nose combines pineapple, ripe peach, crushed stone and menthol. Juicy and sharply delineated but still quite youthfully imploded. Lively and light on its feet, with very good penetration, but doesn't build on the finish like the young 2015 version does. Distinctly linear today: will this expand with several years of cellaring?
