This is nicely controlled and stayed that way over 15 minutes in my glass. The vibrant palate is medium-bodied taut and fresh, with fine acidity and orange zest and a hint of lime toward the finish. This is an excellent Mont de Milieu. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune. -- Neal Martin

On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and gourmand, with racy acids and a long, saline finish. Billaud tells me that this was cropped at less than 20 hectoliters per hectare, and that shows. - WK

The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of pear, fresh pineapple, chalky minerality, spring flowers, just a hint of beeswax and a lovely foundation of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and nicely structured and zesty, with an excellent core, fine soil signature and grip, good acids and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. Fine juice.

Smoky reduction and toasty wood blocks an evaluation of the nose.

Otherwise here too the mouth feel is unusually sleek for a Mont de Milieu with solid volume and mid-palate density, all wrapped in a mineral-driven, powerful, bone dry and tension-filled finish that goes on and on. This youthfully austere effort will require at least some patience and should reward up to a decade of keeping.
