Tasting Notes

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 10: "Pale straw-yellow. Bright, mineral-tinged aromas of citrus peel and gunflint. Dense, supple and ripe, with very concentrated citrus and stone fla vors leavened by the sweetness of the vintage. Wonderfully silky, rich, pure wine with a lovely balance of sucrosite and acidity; in fact, this is amazingly round for a wine with such pronounced minerality. Hints of toast and spice add interest to the long, gripping, citrus- and stone fruit-dominated aftertaste. A great showing considering that it was bottled a mont h prior to my visit." 91-93 points and "Sweet spot" from Allen Meadows: "This is also quite expressive and very flowery with rose petal and saline notes that complement powerful, concentrated and serious full-bodied flavors brimming with buckets of dry extract and an almost pungent minerality that presently dominates the gorgeously long finish. This is also a very impressive effort." (Tasted: Oct 01, 2009) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A bracing white, dry and stony, with apple, yellow plum and lemon holding the middle ground, followed by a nice chalky finish. Best from 2011 through 2017." (10/10)

    Classic Tonnerre styling with subtle hints of mandarin orange peel, crushed rocks and a vibrant resonating finish. Should be even better in a couple of years.
