So perfumed with exotic, tropical-fruit aromas that draw you into the glass. Full-bodied, layered and textured with soft creamy tannins and light stone and walnut undertones. Gun flint. Always a fantastic white. So constant. Drink or hold.
A flagship wine for this producer, this is rich and seductive, opulent even. Bold yellow fruits, ripe apples and pears are surrounded by a youthful texture that will allow it to age. The fruit and the touches of wood are still present, but will integrate beautfully. Drink this wine from 2023. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Vanilla, clove and toast notes shade the core flavors of apple, melon and stone in this rangy white. Balanced in a broad-shouldered way, this offers echoes of mineral and spice on the long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. (BS)
As with several of the, mostly unbottled, wines in the range, there is enough reduction to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is solid power and punch to the medium weight plus flavors that are not as dense as one might expect given the vintage but the finishing balance and complexity are lovely. Note that this appears to possess very good upside development potential.
As usual a gourmand, rich rendition of Corton-Charlemagne, with a nose of ripe Meyer lemon, candied lime, hazelnut and oak vanillin. This is followed by a thick, glossy palate with just a touch of acerbity on the finish detracting from the wine's precision. This is very much for those who appreciate big, bold, textural whites. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026. (WK)
Very slight nutty aroma plus an opulent but well-integrated oak spice. Fresh though understated apple fruit. Decent core concentration. Perhaps deserves a bit of age to open up. 16.5/20 points. (RH)
