(94-97 points) Gorgeous deep fresh yellow, picked on 28th August, 13.85% already, it was time to do it! Very high-class nose, full of complex options.

Very high-class nose, full of complex options. Benjamin didn’t like the new wood component so quickly took it out. Very backward but such a wealth of fruit and it is multi-layered. A classic Bâtard which will go buttery in the fullness of time.

On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and textural, with a concentrated core of fruit, ripe acids and a long, honey finish. Readers who privilege power over tension will gravitate toward this, whereas the Genevrières-Dessus and Tête du Clos will appeal more to purists.- WK

It tends to produce very small berries, according to Leroux, which is no doubt why the nose is very intense, with citrus fruit, lemon curd and light patisserie scents. The well-balanced palate is slightly viscous on the entry. Rich and powerful with an almost lactic, white chocolate and almond finish. One can see why this did not need any new oak. Very fine, though I prefer a couple of Leroux’s premier crus. -- Neal Martin
