Winemaker's Notes

Pale gold colour with green shades. Rich bouquet developing flavours of candied fruit, citrus fruit and dried apricot combined with hints of white fruit and elegant toasted hints. Rich and silky on the palate, of a great elegance. A very fine wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, pale yellow. Lemon, spices and smoky minerality on the nose. Silky on entry, then expands to fill the mouth with rich yet brisk flavors of lemon, dusty stone and vanillin oak. Good acidity gives the wine excellent cut but there's nothing austere about this very nicely balanced premier cru. The captivating rising finish shows a lightly smoky quality and noteworthy finesse. "
92 Points

"A thread of honey weaves throughout this rich white, interspersed with grapefruit, apple, spice and mineral notes. Solid, lingering with spice and butterscotch elements. "
91 Points

"Here too there are background nuances of sulfur that again do not really diminish significantly the appeal of the elegant and classically exotic fruit and perfumed floral scents. There is good richness and punch to the softly mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in a dry, clean and reasonably persistent finish. While certainly very good, 2010 does not appear to be a standout vintage for this wine, at least not relative to the quality that I typically find."
