Waxy, bready and savoury, with citrus fruit purity and commendable focus and freshness for the vintage. You'd never guess this came from a warm, south-facing site.

The palate adds zestiness, suggesting white citrus pith on the midpalate that channels the fruity abundance and gives tension and texture, scented with lemon freshness. The finish is dry, bright and refreshing, with a lovely smidgeon of that Chablis chalkiness. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, September 2020
Clear pale lemon, still a very reductive note here. Attractive light ripe plum notes coming up behind, with a saline limestone finish, slightly fleshier than expected, but good length.

A racy style, this delivers apple, lemon and green plum flavors, with an underlying mineral accent. Linear and taut, with a long aftertaste. Subtle yet intense. Drink now through 2025. 2,000 cases made, 225 cases...   A racy style, this delivers apple, lemon and green plum flavors, with an underlying mineral accent. Linear and taut, with a long aftertaste.

Bottled under Diam like all of these 2018s, it will reward some bottle age.- WK
