Description

This year, the “generic” 1er cru bottling hails 100% from the single parcel les Crêtes. This is an obvious step up in calcaire (limestone) intensity, a tighter coiled tension between its fruit and stone elements. This offers particularly good value, as to get this kind of cru intensity at this price is a rare bird indeed. Man oh man, JP is dialed in……
“Bright yellow. Pungent mineral-driven aromas of menthol and crushed stone. Fine-grained and concentrated, with a lovely touch of sweetness supported by impeccable acid balance. A bit reduced today but already conveys excellent breadth and an impression of rocky density. Finishes with lovely length and lift.” 89-92 Steve Tanzer
