This is the stuff. I love this vineyard in Chavy’s hands. Nose of the nicest lemon ever. It’s a lemon party. Maybe not the best choice of words for the internet. Anyway. Lemon, wet stones, judicious use of discreetly framed oak, like a chef’s salting of a salad. So many wet stones. The nose pierces you. So intense. High toned. Palate has acid. Yeah! Wow, so so bright and mineral. Insane complexity and tight but the sappiness, purity and length show the high quality of this special site. A profound effort.

Screamingly mineral, so clean, so pure, so deep, so clean. Palate is elegant and intense, concentrated and so lithe. Amazingly juicy and mineral with such grip and length. Magical.

The definition of a "wow!" wine... Gorgeous color, stupendous nose of honey, white flowers, bouquet garni/slightly reductive/smooth, supple & elegant in the mouth/fantastic flavors of honeydew melon, nectarines, white peaches/long, complex finish. Can't say enough good things about this wine...

Great wine. Honey, white flowers, apple. High but rounded acid that stays on the tongue.
