"(mostly from the minerally lieu-dit Fairendes but also includes Girardin's fruit from the Abbaye de Morgeot): Pale, bright yellow. Very ripe aromas of yellow peach and pear with a honeyed note. Sweet, smooth and fruity on the palate, showing good density without coming off as heavy. But not particularly complex today." (VM)

"All but invisible wood easily allows the aromas of petrol, white orchard fruit and lavender to shine. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the powerful yet caressing medium weight plus flavors that are opulent to the point of being almost unctuous yet the supporting acidity is sufficient to maintain the balance on the saline-inflected finale. If you like big, rich and succulent white burgs, this would be a good choice." (BH)
