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….

“”(from yields of only 25 hl/ha). This too is presently carrying full-on fermentation aromas and is impossible to judge. More interesting are the exceptionally rich and imposingly dense broad-shouldered flavors that are at once caressing but powerful thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm acid spine shaping the beautifully long finish. Note that while this should generously repay mid-term cellaring, it’s not so structured that it could not be approached after only a few years.
