Burghound 90 points A similar if slightly cooler and more floral-inflected nose gives way to more intense, finer and more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that also possess very good mid-palate density, all wrapped in a lingering finish that is shaped by citrus-tinged acidity. This slightly firmer effort should also drink reasonably well young but also repay a few years of keeping.Decanter 93 points Rewardingly ripe, with creamy apricot fruit on the nose and hints of butter and hazelnut. The texture balances a very pleasant ripeness and plump texture with refreshingly crisp acidity to create a persistent, lingering finish. The domaine owns a half-hectare above Chevalier that was spared the worst damage from the frost – this yielded 26 hl/ha and produced a wine of precision with well-defined fruit flavours and good complexity.
