My note: Oh la la, mon chou chou perso, comme d’hab!. (oh my! my pet favorite, as usual…). Voilà! C’est la Roche qui parle! (There it is! It is the rock that is talking here!). Self evident class and complexity, in the imploded and powerful mineral style so typical of this site. Spicy, a bit smoky/reductive, this is simply class in a rockhead-white-burgundy glass. Another example of a wine that is not appropriate to review so early on in its elevage, as the critics so often do….Get what you can….A little star * awarded here….

“Here too strong reduction renders the nose impossible to correctly assess. The big-bodied, juicy and extremely rich flavors combine both power and salinity where the latter helps add a bit of lift to the driving finish. This is definitely more powerful though the warmth on the citrus-inflected backend is a bit more evident. (89-92)/2021+” Allan Meadows
