If the Clos du Roy impresses for its sense of fat meets freshness, and the Charme aux Pretres for its sense of stony intensity, the Champs Solomon impresses for its sense of absolute harmony and zen balance. This is all about finesse, with WOW worthy self-evident crystalline class and complexity that is jaw dropping. All three of these ’17 “1er crus” are absolute knockout best buys on the white Burgundy world stage, easily of the finest that I have ever tasted from Cyril. BRAVO!!! A little * awarded here.
“Unfurling in the glass with scents of sweet orchard fruit, white flowers and almond paste, the 2019 Marsannay Au Champ Salomon Blanc is medium to full-bodied, bright and chalky, with the most tightly wound, mineral and incisive profile of Audoin’s white Marsannay cuvées this year. As usual, it’s my favorite of the range.” 91-93+ William Kelley
