Vivid finish, turning to flamboyant minerality. In reserve still. Better in 2022.

There is rectitude, austerity and elegance, a subtle wine with great clout and intensity that comes through as chiseled, focused, symmetric and pure, more in the style of Roulot than Coche-Dury, with superb integration of all the elements and fine minerality. This is more about the place and vintage than the grape, which feels like a good way to transmit the chalky soils of the selected plots. Simply superb, possibly the finest vintage for this bottling so far. 6,600 bottles were filled in May 2019. - LG

Nuanced and elegant, with fine notes of lavender and lemon balm and a wet-stone minerality. Mouthwatering acidity with layers of savoury, floral and fruit aromas that interplay in a long, lingering finish.
