($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.

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