Good underlying mineral and a firm structure set the stage for peach, melon, apple and lemon flavors here. Balanced, elegant and long on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
Bright light yellow. Slightly musky scents of fresh apricot, ginger and iodiney sea spray. Juicy, nicely intense, fresh wine with surprising energy but still tight. (Winemaker Bailly says this was picked a day after the Fourchaume but I would have guessed the opposite.) A substantial, silky wine with length and smoothness, building nicely on the firm, gripping finish. Winemaker Olivier Bailly says this wine was opulent and exotic last year like the 2016 is today--but not in bottle.(ST)
Once again the impression of the nose is both ripe and cool with its layered mix of ever-so-slightly fruit aromas of mineral reduction, pear liqueur and a wisp of tidal pool. There is good richness if not the finesse usually found with the palate impression of a fine Vaulorent though I do like the depth and sneaky good length.
