"Sweet spot. Outstanding. From a full 1 ha parcel of 50+ year old vines that saw 40% new wood.
Vestiges of post-bottling sulfur don't completely mask the otherwise elegant citrus, white pear and acacia blossom aromas. The detailed, intense and concentrated medium weight plus flavors possess excellent drive on the refined, pure and strikingly long finish. As is often the case, this classy effort takes best in show for the Sauzet 1ers in 2016."

"(Boudot has been steadily replanting his acreage with old massale vines over the past dozen years): Aromas of ripe apple, peach and hazelnut reminded me of Meursault. Silky, spicy, plush wine with a seductively mouthfilling character and no rough edges. Ripe juicy pear throughout. Finishes dry, juicy, gripping and long."
