Outer quote mark Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey's vines are in the higher part of the clos on clay soils. Richer and broader than some of his wines - though everything is relative - it combines notes of crème fraîche and patisserie with racy, focused, palate-thrilling acidity and the subtle wood that's a feature of his style. Early picking was the key to the balance of this wine in 2018. Drinking Window 2023 - 2035. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A slightly riper nose features notes of exotic white and yellow orchard fruit, resin and a whisper of rosemary oil. The sleek and delicious flavors are rich but not quite as dense as those of the Chenevottes though they do possess an attractive texture while delivering fine length on the refreshing, citrusy and notably dry finale. Inner quote mark (6/2020)
