Winemaker's Notes

Intense fruit and toasty aromas blended with the mineral notes typical of this appellation. A rich, powerful wine with a strong personality. Very good ageing potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Tight, slightly metallic nose hints at lemon, lime, green tea, creme brulee and vanillin oak. Very ripe but firm on entry, with penetrating stone fruit and lemon-lime flavors. Then explosive on the back half, with a rising, compellingly tactile and sweet finish that suggests a great future. These vines were picked very late, noted winemaker Prost, who added that he used a higher percentage of new oak for this cuvee (18%) than for any of his other whites in '09.
Rating: 95(+?)"
