Gorgeous from the get-go, featuring notes of creamed melon, yellow apple and persimmon that glide effortlessly, inlaid with hints of green tea, verbena, heather and quince. The long finish has beautiful flow, with a buried mineral edge imparting freshness while the fruit plays out. Best from 2018 through 2040. 200 cases imported. –JM

The bouquet shows a beautiful glaze of clean botrytis in its aromatic blend of pineapple, sweet quince, tangerine, honey, a lovely cornerstone of soil, orange peel, dried flowers and a bit of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and full-bodied, with marvelous depth and balance, bright acids, great complexity to come and stunning length and bounce on the superbly energetic and seamless finish. This has a bit of that early vinosity that was found in the Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec and augurs very, very well for its future development!

Piquant and with a lovely grip and concentration, this is a vibrant, finesse-full and tension-filled Chenin with a beautifully charming fruit and sweetness. The finish is very long, pure and salty, and again full of tension and fine grip. This is a world-class sweet wine. - Stephan Reinhardt
