DESCRIPTION

François Bitouzet said that 2017 was "a vintage that made us smile even with the knowledge that we narrowly avoided another potential catastrophe due to the frost. Once that big drama was behind us, the growing season was largely a piece of cake. I chose to begin picking on the 30th of August and while yields were reasonable, they certainly weren't high. Interestingly, the malos were precocious in white yet they were relatively long for the reds. Overall, 2017 is a vintage that I like for its transparency and refreshing vibrancy plus the wines should be approachable on the younger side." I would agree with Bitouzet's take on his 2017s as they are certainly vibrant and transparent. An all but mute nose only grudgingly gives up its aromas of green apple, mineral reduction and lemon-lime zest. The pure, sleek and ultra-refined medium weight flavors brim with minerality that adds a bit of lift to the classy, focused, intense and well-balanced finale that is presently on the youthfully austere finish. This beauty is sufficiently closed to suggest that it will need at least a decade of cellaring to arrive at its apogee.” Burghound 91-94
