« Bright yellow. Very sexy, pure nose combines ripe yellow peach, smoky oak and a subtle suggestion of redcurrant. Wonderfully fine-grained but not a fat or particularly fleshy style. Orange zest and licorice flavors are rather imploded in the early going owing to the wine's strong minerality. This firm, juicy, youthfully tight wine boasts terrific energy and the best finish of any of these 2014s. » (Vinous 2016 - Antonio Galloni)

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 16,5/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : Sélectionné (Nous rappelons que ce guide est un palmarès et qu'à ce titre, tous les domaines qui y figurent, même sans étoile, représentent, à nos yeux, l'excellence de la production française.)

About this wine : Issue d'une parcelle exploitée en monopole et composée de vignes de 60 ans, cette cuvée profite d'un bel équilibre avec la belle maturité du chardonnay et les notes fines et grillées de l'élevage, que dans sa bouche large, qui allie fraîcheur et opulence. Très persistant.

Decanter Magazine

Decanter Magazine

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 92/100

About this wine : Shy lime and apple nose, intense with the new oak prominent. Tight attack with a lot of extract, pungent, rather closed and a bit gawky now, but it's structured and has ageing potential. Stony finish.

Burghound

Burghound

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 89-92/100

About this wine : Once again the nose is very generously wooded and to the point where the oak does dominate the underlying ripe fruit. Buttery nuances mark the middle weight flavors that do offer good vibrancy and an attractive touch of minerality on the delicious, complex and agreeably dry finale.
