Made from two parcels totally 1ha of 65-year-old vines,it's suitably taut, saline and cool, with none of the heaviness that mars some wines from warmer sites. Floral, balanced and elegant, it has stony minerality to spare and a chiselled, refined finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028

The bouquet is flat out gorgeous in this vintage, wafting from the glass in a mix of fresh lime, apple, flinty minerality, citrus zest and again, dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, pure and full-bodied, with a very mineral personality (especially for 2018!), with great mid-palate depth and grip, snappy acids and superb length on the focused and beautifully balanced finish. This is great juice in 2018- buy some of it in magnum if you can!

Medium to full-bodied, tensile and incisive, it's elegantly textural, with racy acids and fine depth at the core. As I observed last year, this is one of the domaine's cooler sites and thus one of the last to be picked. - WK

The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, and quite elegant, in keeping with the style of this vineyard. There is fine persistence on the finish. Recommended. -- Neal Martin
