Tasting Notes

(in barrel; 13.8% alcohol): Cloudy appearance. Very ripe scents of orange peel, lemon, pear drop and crushed rock; smells solid! Tactile and thick but with integrated lemony acidity leavening the wine's touch of creamy sweetness and accentuating its dusty rocky texture. Soil-driven, concentrated Bâtard but a bit less wild than usual for this cuvée. One feels the humidity of the soil here. A very classy, penetrating, fine-grained grand cru with a superb acid balance (actually 4.2 grams per liter) and outstanding rising length. An outstanding white Burgundy in the making.
