There is a hint of exoticism to the citrus pear and white peach suffused nose that is presently trimmed in a noticeable if very slight touch of sulfur. The rich and extremely fresh middle weight plus flavors possess an impressive amount of dry extract as well as ample mineral influence on the austere and ultra-pure finish that seems to go on and on. This powerful and impeccably well balanced but presently closed effort should live for many years though it will probably come to its peak 10 to 12 years from now. In a word fabulous.

Offering a nice mix of citrus and mineral with a hint of oak this is subtle and nuanced with white peach lemon and floral flavors. A luminous white. Best from 2013 through 2027. 3000 cases made. -BS

Nose dominated by lime crushed stone and steely minerality. Densely packed and almost painfully dry with taut penetrating citrus and mineral flavors showing more energy than flesh today. This ungiving grand cru has plenty of depth and flavor intensity but is an infant today. The stony austere finish is like touching a live wire. This seems every bit as steely as the estate's 2007 at the same stage but denser; in fact this may be even more closed. 92+
