Sorry, this product is not currently for sale.

This is also aromatically ripe and cool with its more elegant nose of apple, white flowers, tidal pool and a hint of baked bread. The textured, refined and classy medium weight flavors ooze a discreet bead of minerality on the delicious and more vibrant finish that is agreeably dry.  Burghound 89-92

(Billaud-Simon produced 48 hectoliters per hectare as this sector was spared by frost and hail): Orange and lime zest aromas are complicated by musky apple, mint, crushed stone and ginger. Silky, suave and classic; quite dry but not edgy, offering alluring flavors of peach, minerals and ginger. A rather feminine, fine-grained style but still with a serious structure. Spicy and reverberating on the classic finish. This wine only finished its malo a month before my visit; one of the three cuves had been racked but the other two were still on their lees. Superb potential.  Vinous Media 91-93
