Lemon yellow with golden hints. Straight-backed and scrupulous for solar ’09. The use of oak is deft and fine and in keeping with this grand cru. Fruit is polytonal and ripe, the only place you sense his vintage: apricot, pineapple, mandarin … but sappy rather than sucrosite. The finish is complex, at once declamatory and intricate, with the innate command of this great climat. I can still taste it as I write. From 2018.
