(Billaud works with east-facing vines on the left side of this grand cru): Bright lemon-yellow color. Citrus fruit aromas complemented by smoky, spicy oak. Fat and thick but backward, with harmonious acidity and stony minerality energizing the middle palate. Finishes powerful and long but not hot, with a pungent flavor of crushed citrus peel. Billaud noted that the right side of this grand cru produces more complex wine but needs to be picked later. This example is distinctly soil-driven and brisk, with a rising finish.(ST)
Somewhat surprisingly, this is aromatically quite similar to the Preuses if perhaps displaying a bit better freshness. There is even more size, weight and power to the more dramatically scaled full-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that confers a borderline chewy texture to the sappy and lingering finish that flirts with rusticity. This is exceptionally forward for a grand cru even though it will have no problem aging.
