"(just finished its malo the week before my visit): Soft citrus fruits, lemon and almond skin on the nose. Sweet on entry, then quite backward in the middle, with harmonious acidity keeping the flavors of soft citrus fruits, spices and green almond in the background today. A bit youthfully dry on the finish. Conveys a rather strong impression of acidity, but this is technically the lowest in acid of Boillot's five grand crus."

"Moderate wood frames ripe, dense and expressive yellow orchard fruit that also evidences discreet notes of exotic elements. The equally well-concentrated, powerful and imposingly scaled flavors possess an abundance of palate soaking dry extract, indeed so much so that this displays an almost chewy mouth feel on the massively persistent finish. This is not at present extraordinarily complex though there is so much material that my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will develop in time as this will need at least a decade to arrive at its peak."
