Captivating soil-driven nose offers stone fruits, flowers, chlorophyll, clove, medicinal herbs and warm stones. The palate offers lovely perfumed lift to the vibrant lemon and powdered stone flavors; magically light on its feet in spite of its underlying richness. Perhaps best today on the compellingly long, mounting finish, which leaves the mouth pulsating with mineral-driven perfume. (ST) 95+
Initially this is still restrained but after only 10 minutes or so it becomes quite expressive with a nose that is airy, ripe, elegant and strikingly pure as it combines plenty of Chablis character that includes sea breeze, citrus and green fruit aromas that precede the delineated and equally pure flavors of stunning depth and intensity, all wrapped in a hugely long finish. Like the nose, the minerality seems subdued at first yet arrives in a real rush on the finale. A genuinely great wine that is a study in harmony and grace as well as one that should age effortlessly for many years. I have advanced the suggested drinking window by one year as this can already be drunk with pleasure even though it is still on the way up. In a word, stunning.
Fresh and concentrated, combining elegance and power. Grapefruit, honey, floral and mineral notes have depth and balance. Just a bit hot on the finish now, but with a great oyster shell finish. Needs a year or two. Best from 2012 through 2026. (BS, Web Only-2013)
