Deep, smoky yet discreet aromas of ripe citrus and stone fruits and crushed rock. A superconcentrated sweet-salty wine with lovely nectarine, citrus and spice flavors. The wine's thickness of fruit is nicely leavened by harmonious acidity. Some hail here cut production by about 35% in 2016. A wonderfully full, horizontal wine without any excess weight. Finishes sappy, flinty and long. The Barrauds' vines are in the middle of the climat, altitude-wise, and Julien noted that their fruit ripens very quickly and often needs to be harvested early. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse

On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny and supple, with an expansive, open-knit profile. This should drink well on release. - William Kelley collapse

The mouth feel of the dense and muscular flavors is also borderline chewy as the dry extract is almost thick though the mildly warm finish is nicely refined, even sophisticated, though I underscore that it is bone dry. collapse
