It ages in barrels that are initially full but are left without topping them up, so the wine evaporates and at some point develops a thin veil of yeasts. Here, the nutty aromas show a smoky/roasted twist. The palate is serious and mineral with a strong chalky sensation ending with a salty twist. This is the finest of the recent vintages I have tasted of this cuvée—elegant, fresh and mineral. It was bottled in March 2019. - LG
