Description

This is an impressive 'wow' wine aromatically, perfumed and fresh, with toasted cherry and bright peach stone on the nose. The palate is divine, textured, complete and finessed, cleanly defined, pure and correct. Incredible fruit, cut through with a chalky, talc-like mineral substance, showing a style very typical of the lieu-dit, but undeniably lifted by the quality of this vintage. Early impressions when tasted from barrel on previous visits have been realised; this is nothing short of stunning."

98 points, Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
