($107) Pale, bright yellow. Musky, lower-toned aromas of ripe yellow fruits, minerals, smoke and earth; less pristine than the Vaudesir. Then sweet, round and a bit exotic, with apricot and peach blossom flavors dominating today. Bernard Billaud notes that this wine is always rounder and more open than the Vaudesir, but I find some slightly disjointed acidity in the middle palate today. Still, this finishes suave and long, with a rather refined texture.

A wonderfully stylish wine and as is usually the case, the nose isn't quite as ripe as the Vaud‚sir with green fruit, citrus and wet stone notes leading to rich, full and generous flavors that are focused, delineated and ultra pure, particularly on the palate drenching and mildly austere finish as this possesses buckets of sŠve. A stunner of a wine and recommended.

Full, broad, round. Green fruits and wet stones. Limpid, lots there.
