Tasting Notes

There is a barely discernible touch of wood framing the green apple, lemon peel, floral, iodine and oyster shell nuances where once again subtle nuances of exotic fruit can be perceived. The intense, powerful and sleekly muscular big-bodied flavors possess excellent volume and mid-palate concentration before terminating in an explosively long, clean and very dry though again not really austere finish. By the usual standards of this wine, 2013 can aptly be described as an opulent but focused vintage for it.

Note: from 7 different parcels of 50+ year old vines that total 1.7 ha

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (60), October 2015

Pale yellow. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Preuses, offering strong oyster-shell minerality lifted by lavender and violet nuances. Densely packed, tactile and suave, displaying outstanding energy and inner-mouth citrussy lift. Comes across as less violent than the Preuses, and more perfumed on the palate. Finishes with oustanding length and a magically light touch.
