(AG=93-95) (from a yield of 35 hectoliters per hectare, according to Pillot): Bright, pale yellow. Knockout nose combines lemon, lime, white peach, white pepper and crushed stone. Utterly suave and fine-grained but given grip by serious mineral tension. This, too, is a superb expression of terroir. Finishes very dry, saline and classic, with slowly building length; really glistens and vibrates on the aftertaste. (picked at the end in 2017, on September 10, with potential alcohol of 13%). (AM=91-94) A discreet application of wood can be found on the intensely floral-suffused aromas that exhibit additional nuances of spice, white peach, jasmine tea and the barest hint of passion fruit. The creasing yet highly energetic large-scaled flavors brim with minerality as well as a taut muscularity that makes its presence known on the focused, impressively long and well-balanced finale. This will need to add depth to merit the upper end of my projected range but the potential appears to be present for that to occur.
