(AG=89-92) (these 35-year-old vines on SO4 rootstock are ""getting old,"" notes Pillot): Bright yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, white pepper and minerals. In a silky, elegant style, showing more pungent minerality than primary fruit. This very pure wine conveys a Puligny-like vivacity. Excellent potential here. (AM=89-91) This is quite firmly reduced and aromatically unreadable. By contrast there is both fine richness and volume to the sappy middle weight flavors that deliver good persistence on the clean, dry and again, ever-so-mildly rustic finish.
