(from two parcels of 70-year-old vines that produced tiny grapes with deep yellow skins, according to Girardin) Inviting bright yellow color. Superripe aromas of yellow fruits. Fat and creamy, with extraordinary sweetness of fruit. Expands impressively in the mouth. Hugely full wine but not at all phenolic. As rich and smooth as this is, it's still more backward than the "regular" cuvee
