The bouquet is a fine blend of apple, pear, beeswax, chalky minerality, citrus zest, spring flowers and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off excellent mid-palate depth, with fine acidity and a long, vibrant finish. Like the Valmur, there is plenty of generosity on the attack today, but this too should show more firmness after bottling and I would not open a bottle for at least a few years. collapse

Coming back after five minutes, there is a light minty note. The palate is powerful and very well balanced, a fine line of acidity struck through the lightly-spiced fruit with hints of nutmeg and even fennel that lead to a poised but very persistent and satisfying finish. This is just an extremely satisfying Les Clos that will give 20 to 30 years drinking pleasure. - NM collapse

Tighter and greener on the nose than the Valmur, with the aromas of lime, mint and talc coming across as less ripe. Broad, austere and energetic in the mouth; surprisingly mouthcoating considering how early it was harvested but with a hint of grapefruit zest bitterness making it difficult to taste today. Finishes brisk and energetic, with an impression of weightlessness. Holds out superb potential, but this bone-dry Clos will need serious cellaring to express itself fully. Production here was just 20 hectoliters per hectare owing to the hail losses, and the Raveneaus may assemble this cuvée a little earlier than usual. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
