Tasting Notes

This is just as aromatically pure as the Goutte d'Or but with just a bit more elegance to the pear and green apple scents along with the hallmark spiciness of a fine Genevrières. There is really lovely intensity to the delineated, energetic and mineral-inflected flavors that also exude a saline character on the impressively long, balanced and stylish finish. Good stuff here and worth considering. ""Outstanding"" Drink 2017+

Score: 92Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (51), June 2013

Bright, pale yellow. Light, precise aromas of lemon, lime and white pepper. Juicy and light on its feet, with intense but understated flavors of citrus peel, flowers and minerals. The wine's very good density is leavened by firm acidity. Finishes brisk and persistent. Not a fat style but has the backbone to reward cellaring. Bright, pale yellow.

Score: 91+Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar (170), September 2013

(from a 1974 planting): Good pale yellow. Enticing aromas of peach, pear and white flowers. At once juicy and creamy, with an aromatic hazelnut quality adding interest to the ripe stone fruit flavors. Tactile and expansive wine with a restrained sweetness and excellent saline length. As these vines age, says Prost, they're giving riper fruit without loss of nervosite.
