" '(from a 1 ha parcel of 25 year old vines, planted 50% to chardonnay and the remainder to pinot noir). This delivers real volume on both the nose and the palate as there is good richness and intensity if not quite the minerality and flavor detail of the Chaumées. The flavors are roundand plump yet set off nicely against a firm acid backbone. (Allen Meadows, Burghound.com)'Full, fat, rich and concentrated. Good grip. Backward, even firm. Some built in sulphur. Long and meaty. Very good Plus. (Clive Coates, The Vine)'Rather diffuse aromas of white plum, citrus fruits and herbs. Fairly dense but on the soft side. Shows a bit of acidity on the finish.' (Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellar)"
