Issue: Issue 127
(just 2-1/2 barrels made, vs. a normal 4-1/2) Bright spicy nose. Densely packed but juicy, with a solid acid structure giving this good verve and a light touch, especially for Batard. Finishes quite long and spicy. Offers excellent potential.

Tasting note: An intensely floral nose is nuanced with hints of spice and citrus where the latter can also be found on the textured and borderline massive flavors but like the Criots, there is absolutely no sense of heaviness on the exceptionally rich finish that drenches and stains the palate. This is one big wine yet there is a firm acid backbone that keeps everything in ideal balance and overall, it's one extremely impressive effort.
