Description

My note: As it always is, this is a bell ringer for its step up in mineral intensity allied to impressive density of fruit concentration. A stalwart favorite of many many people, this will not disappoint, in the solar and somewhat softer nature of the vintage. A little star * awarded here.

“(from vines situated in Davayé, planted in rocky, high limestone content soil which abuts the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of Le Pommard on the edge of Vergisson and Solutré). A whiff of muscat character adds a bit of aromatic breadth to the aromas of peach, apricot and lychee nut. The exceptionally rich, even opulent flavors are relatively full-bodied and more powerful than usual, all wrapped in a clean and dry finish that offers better overall balance.
