(like the Genevrières, this was almost finished with its malolactic fermentation at the end of May): Cloudy, pale yellow-green. Slightly metallic aromas of apple, lime leaf and spearmint. Offers an attractive sweet touch but the saline flavors of crushed herbs and white pepper are quite tight today. Weber vinified three plots together because quantities were so low in 2014. Hard to judge today owing to its remaining malic acidity.  Vinous/Steve Tanzer 90-92

This is very firmly reduced at present and it seems sufficiently firm that I would not be inclined to open a bottle before allowing at least a few years of bottle age. On the plus side there is excellent mid-palate concentration to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess cuts-like-a-knife delineation, all wrapped in an overtly saline and tension-filled finale that is dry to the point of mild austerity. This beauty is clearly built to age and note well that it is going to need it.  Burghound 93 Sweet Spot Outstanding!
