Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
Elegant and harmonious, exhibiting talcum powder, marshmallow, lemon cake, stone and chalk aromas and flavors. Shows good cut courtesy of the acidity, augmented by light tannins. Tightly wound now, but everything is there. Best from 2022 through 2032. 100 cases made
Organically certified wine. 0.30 ha of 45-year-old vines on the Pernand-Vergelesses side facing west, with a high proportion of limestone and marl.
Classic smart-white-burgundy aroma: there's a slight smokiness, subtle cedar and spice from the oak and still pure grapefruit-like citrus freshness. The palate echoes that complexity and the fruit is quite rich and ripe but still very fresh. Complete and long and there's more complexity to come. Spicy finish with a mealy character from the oak and so fresh. (JH)
