This effortlessly stylish white from chalky soils on the southern side of Beaune, close to Pommard, is intense, textured and well balanced. It has scented 30% new wood, vivid minerality, citrus and patisserie notes and a long, refreshing finish. collapse

The palate has a very succulent core of fruit and very impressive acidity. The young white peaches are zesty and fresh and the grilled hazelnuts warm the finish. Stunning! Drink or hold. collapse

This ripe wine has weight and richness while maintaining balancing freshness. Citrus flavors are already integrated with spice from wood aging to give a full, delicious and ready-to-drink wine. - ROGER VOSS

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, with racy underlying acids, a fragrant core of fruit and a long, penetrating finish. This is a very elegant, aromatic rendition of this emblematic Drouhin cuvée. - William Kelley collapse

It has quite a strict, conservative bouquet of vibrant citrus fruit infused with touches of linden and orange pith. The palate is quite assertive on the entry, conveying good weight. Like many white 2017s, it is lightly spiced, though this cuvée shows more marine influences and a tang of marmalade toward the persistent, intense finish. Very fine. -- Neal Martin collapse
