Powerful bouquet, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.
Wine Spectator 90 points - A touch of oak adds light vanilla accents that round out this bracing white. Flavors of green apple, quince and lemon ride the steely backbone to a long conclusion. Best from 2017 through 2023. 200 cases imported.-BS

Vinous 91 points - Very pale yellow-green. Restrained, pure aromas of citrus zest, white peach and white pepper. Densely packed and rich but precise too, with nicely integrated acidity and underlying minerality giving this wine good precision for the year. Has the balance to offer early enjoyment but also the inner-mouth tension to age. A round, seamless wine with excellent tasty persistence.
This climat is almost an extension of the slopes where the Grands Crus grow, with only a small path separating them. Sitting directly alongside Les Preuses, the proximity to its illustrious neighbours results in powerful, mineral wines.
