Tasting Notes

(from two separate parcels of vines, the larger of which is in the heart of the “amphitheater” from which the finest examples of Vaudésir originate). Here the wood is so subtle as to be all but invisible as it easily allows the riper and denser mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit, petrol, spice and sea breeze scents to shine. The ripeness exhibited by the nose continues onto the juicy, even succulent yet beautifully focused flavors that deliver superb complexity on the impressively lingering finale. This should age effortlessly and I would expect the minerality to develop even more with age. A ‘wow’ wine.

Here the wood is so subtle as to be all but invisible as it easily allows the riper and dense mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit, spice and sea breeze scents. The ripeness exhibited by the nose continues onto the juicy, even succulent broad-shouldered flavors that deliver stunningly good complexity on the impressively lingering finale. This should age effortlessly and I would expect the minerality to develop even more with age.

Score: 92/95Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (60), October 2015

(picked on the first day of the harvest): Pale yellow. Cool aromas of lime, crushed herbs, pepper and mint. Densely packed but light on its feet, conveying moderate richness to its lime, mint and pepper flavors. Quite tight and taut; in need of time to evolve but I don't find the flavor development of the better 2014s here. Perhaps picked a bit too early.
