The robe is light lemon yellow with green reflections, of medium intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.
The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a dominant of fruity scents, citrus fruits, lemon, blood orange, white flowers, and spices, ginger. The airing enhances these scents and reveals a mineral and hydrocarbonic profile (gas and naphtha). The nose, a bit short, is sophisticated and marked by the terroir. Noble and precise, it expresses the stature of this Grand Cru.
The onset in the mouth is dense and full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium of marked, vertical and saline liveliness. The range of flavours is the same as that of the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits, lemon zest, blood orange, white flowers, spices, white pepper, ginger and this unique mineral touch of naphtha and gas. We perceive a firm, noble and tasty hint of bitterness. The finish has a good length, 7-8 caudalies, as well as a frank liveliness and a hint of persistent bitterness.
The pure and crystalline balance of this wine is built and driven by the terroir. With time, the aromatic range promises to be a great one.
