Burghound, February 2011

Note: from a .22 ha parcel of vines planted in '62 and '68. Here mild reduction doesn't materially diminish the appeal of the more elegant if ever-so-slightly less complex aromas that feature notes of stone lemon zest acacia blossom and spiced pear. There is superb intensity and simply gorgeous detail to the mineral-driven and impeccably well-balanced flavors and explosive finale. Still as good as this is and it is indeed exceptional the superior complexity of the Bâtard gives it the barest of edges in 2009. - Comments: Don't miss!

Fresh and floral in aroma this white has an almost ethereal feel despite being ripe and rich. Its floral lime butter and spice flavors match the elegant frame with harmony and grace. Fine length. Best from 2013 through... Fresh and floral in aroma this white has an almost ethereal feel despite being ripe and rich.

Reticent serious nose offers wet stone clove and a medicinal menthol quality; fruit in the deep background here. Then dense tactile and stony on the palate with penetrating high-pitched flavors of lavender minerals and yellow plum. Impressively mineral and floral for the year this excellent refined very young grand cru will need time in bottle to expand. A triumph of terroir over vintage here. 93+
