About

89-92

"(aging in one-third new oak): Sexy, restrained aromas of yellow peach and spices, with a note of lime emerging with air. Then juicy and sharply chiseled on the palate, showing more citrus than yellow fruits and a repeating spicy character. A firm spine of acidity and minerality gives this leanish wine clarity and lift and draws out the finish. Production here was around 50 hectoliters per hectare, or "close to normal," according to Marion Javillier. I like this style."

Product Description:

"The wine has a characteristic bouquet with overtones of white flowers, white and yellow fruit and a slight spicy note, on the whole complex and very elegant; in the mouth it is full- bodied, vigorous and mineral with a fine aromatic freshness. A delicate wine it has a long finish and a certain underlying robustness and its style may be described as between a classic Meursault and a typical Puligny-Montrachet." - Winery
