"($600) Very pale green-tinged yellow. Brooding yet delicate aromas of flinty minerality, iodine, mint and lavender. Almost painfully young today but boasts superb energy and precision and a wonderfully light touch for its superb intensity. A Montrachet of refinement and lift more than sheer volume. Best today on the extremely long, slowly mounting finish, which shows outstanding definition and coats the palate with a light dusting of tannins." (IWC)

" A highly expressive and radiant nose offers the purest fruit in the range as it offers up a mélange of upper register acacia blossom and freshly cut lemon-lime aromas trimmed in a discreet amount of wood. The nose is followed by strikingly detailed, stony and powerful broad-scaled flavors that culminate in a palate-etching finish of spectacular length. This is breath-taking stuff as balance is perfect and this should age well for years." (BH)
