An intensely floral nose is still fresh if no longer youthful with solid amounts of Chablis character that includes iodine, citrus and sea breeze. There is fine richness to the mouth coating and intensely mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that retain a really lovely sense of underlying tension, all wrapped in a delicious and moderately dry finale. For my taste this has arrived at its peak though I underscore that it should have no difficulty holding at this plateau for up to another decade. In a word, lovely.
Extremely pure, subtle aromas of grapefruit, lime oil and powdered stone; less smoky and more ethereal than the Valmur. Then extremely backward and rather inexpressive on the palate but already demonstrating extraordinary palate coverage and power. Like liquid stone in the mouth, but only hinting at the kaleidoscope of flavors to come with eight to ten years, or more, of bottle aging. A wine of incredible solidity; 30 seconds after spitting this wine (okay, swallowing it), I felt it was still in my mouth. Comparable in complexity, quality and structure to a great bottle of Le Montrachet.
