Tasting Notes and Scores

Allen Meadows
91-94

Here the nose is quite similar to that of the Pucelles, particularly with its honeysuckle and citrus aromas that are perhaps ever so slightly less ripe while leading to rich, concentrated and slightly more focused and delineated medium full flavors that explode on the palate staining finish. I like the energy here as well as the underlying sense of harmony of expression.

(bottled one month ago) Subtly complex nose combines peach, apple, pear, minerals, hazelnut and smoke. Explosively fruity in the mouth, with firm acidity and brisk citrus flavors giving the mid-palate terrific focus and lift. As rich as this is, it conveys a lovely light touch. Finishes firmly structured, vibrant and very long. A very good year for this style.
