A cool airy and almost delicate nose sports notes of pain grillé citrus and dried rose petal plus a wet stone hint that carries over to rich and nicely full yet precise and clearly stonier middle weight flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel and excellent cut intensity and length if not the depth of the best 1ers in the range. This should age nicely as it's very well balanced. Drink: 2013+

From young vines immediately north of the hamlet of Blagny high above Les Perrieres - whose mineral cast Remy believes it will come to resemble Leflaive's 2007 Meursault Sous le Dos de Ane smells of honeysuckle and fresh apricot; comes onto the palate quite rich and silken but with bright lemon and chalk dust adjuncts; and finishes with salinity chalkiness and a meat broth-like savor vaguely reminiscent of Chablis. The combination of (metaphorically) warm ripeness and lush texture with overt mineral notes is unusual and fascinating and there is satisfying if not especially dynamic persistence. I would plan on enjoying this over the next 3-4 years. Drink: 2009 - 2013 --- David Schildknecht

Restrained aromas of stone fruits clove nuts and minerals. Fruitier and sweeter in the mouth than the Clavoillon with enticing harmonious acidity but less obvious minerality. But this rich round wine has plenty of depth and its mineral component comes up on the oak-spicy finish.
