"Sexy, aromas of lemon, pineapple, clove and smoky minerality. Generous, concentrated and sweet, with strong stone fruit flavors framed and lifted by harmonious acidity and underlying minerality. Shows lovely fat but the long, fresh finish also shows very good cut."

"Les Frionnes has an easterly exposition, which usually makes this wine a bit more minerally in personality than the Clos du Meix, and this is the case in the 2011 vintage. The bouquet is quite reserved and refined in its blend of apple, pink grapefruit, chalky minerality, white flowers, lemon peel and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and tightly-knit, with a lovely core, nascent complexity and impressive length and grip on the racy finish. This has a decidedly “cooler” personality this year than several of the other St. Aubin premier crus, but it has lovely depth and transparency and will be a superb example of the vintage. 2018-2035."

"This is not quite as elegant but it’s every bit as aromatically complex with its nose of essence of pear, dried flowers and citrus peel scents. There is a relatively generous mouth feel to the tension-filled and impressively precise and intense flavors that are even more saline in character, indeed this seems borderline salty on the otherwise clean and very dry finish. This too is most impressive."
