(it's always fascinating to see the contrast between these three wines as both Butteaux and Forêts are sub-climats of Montmains) Easily the best of the these three Montmains climats with an aromatically reserved nose that is clearly less ripe offers nuances of white peach, pear and sea breeze that continue onto the impressively concentrated, intense and powerful flavors that possess excellent dry extract, all wrapped around a firm acid spine and terrific length. This has plenty of nervosité and real harmony of expression.

Good pale, green-tinged color. Stony, pure and subdued on the nose. Tightly wound today, with the citrus, mineral and spicy oak flavors coming across as dry, even austere. Strong acids and minerality give the finish a faint hard edge and make this tricky to taste today. Right now the fruit is in the deep background.

Oak character adds vanilla to the lemon and apple flavors, yet this is intense, creamy and vibrant. Lingers with butterscotch and mineral components on the long finish.
