The name "Les Pierres Blanches" (white stones) refers to the calcareous laves, flat slabs once used for roofing, and still employed today to cap the walls of enclosed vineyards. On the sun-drenched "mountain", these white limestone slabs are further bleached by continuous exposure.
"The 2010 Cotes de Beaune Les Pierres Blanches is flat-out delicious. Crushed rocks, slate, citrus peel and smoke are some of the many notes that flow from this wiry, beautifully articulated white. The 2010 possesses gorgeous length and a long, creamy finish.
Range: 88-91 Points "
The Wine Advocate
"Airy and fresh, with creamy notes of vanilla and the crust of creme brulee, this has tart acidity to spark up the finish, bringing out bright orange citrus flavors that last. Oak brings a puff pastry richness to the wine, but it’s balanced by all the citrusy fruit. Decant it for a cream-based seafood stew."
