(from a huge 4.5 ha parcel located in Chapelot). A pretty and distinctly ripe nose combines even more prominent notes of white flower along with those of pear, apple and quinine. The refined, pure and reasonably well-detailed medium weight flavors possess good richness and density while delivering reasonably good length on the moderately dry and lemon-inflected finale. This is also very classy and a wine that should benefit from a few years of bottle age to develop more overall depth.
Exotic yet discreet scents of apple and fresh herbs, plus a faint lactic note. More open in the mouth than the Vaulorent; in fact, already generous even if its fruit tones are muted in the early going. Chewy, flinty, minerally wine with building pear fruit. Finishes with sneaky rising length. Doesn't show the normal austerity of this elite premier cru and yet this wine comes across as only moderately ripe. In fact, the estate had originally planned to pick this fruit on September 7 but had to bring it in quickly after the hailstorm. (ST)
Ripe apple with a lovely pithy skin character - much more depth on the palate than their Fôret. Chewy and textural - excellent. (RH)
