Reticent but pure scents of minerals and lemon oil. Then seriously rich and fat in the mouth, but with more acidity and structure than the basic Vaillons cuvée. This large-scaled premier cru, from a crop level of just 25 hectoliters per hectare, shows terrific citrus and mineral firmness but it's also plush and sweet and not at all hard. I was surprised when Dauvissat told me it weighs in at 14% alcohol, as it boasts plenty of buffering material. Finishes with slowly building length and a hint of white truffle. -- Stephen Tanzer
