Impressive for its regal presence on the palate this white isn't showy yet it demands your focus as it crosses the palate in layers of spring blossom honeysuckle citrus hazelnut and mineral flavors. There's a vibrant structure and the finish keeps on coming in waves. Best from 2012 through 2030. 350 cases made. -BS

Sexy nose melds fresh pineapple stone and musky quinine. Large-scaled and showy with superb fruit intensity and a sweet tangy quality to the flavors of lemon lime pineapple and quinine. A huge and superripe wine with superb building length. This has the balance for extended aging and may well shut down in the bottle. Philippe wanted to harvest these vines early but his father Joseph wanted to wait-"like he did in '59" said Philippe. In the end the last batches of fruit came in with potential alcohol of 15% but no rot.
