It's easy to sense that this comes from a warmer terroir as there is a softly exotic character to the aromas of lychee, citrus, white peach, passion fruit and pretty spice nuances. The succulent and seductively textured middle weight flavors possess good acid support that renders the clean and agreeably dry finish quite refreshing. While this should age well over the mid-term, it should also drink reasonably well after only 2 to 3 years.

Vincent Prudhon succinctly described the 2017 growing season as "one where we largely avoided any climatic incidents. We did suffer a bit of frost damage in our parcels of Bourgogne and St. Aubin villages but otherwise, things were really pretty calm and clement. We chose to begin picking on the 4th of September and the fruit was essentially spotless and the only sorting necessary was because of some under ripe berries. It was also solidly ripe with good acidities so the vinifications and the malos passed without any difficulties. As to the style of the 2017s, they're classically styled with good freshness, transparency and are not so structured that they couldn't be enjoyed young and this is true for both reds and whites. As to quality, I would say that the whites are better though the difference isn't enormous." I would agree with Prudhon as I was more impressed with the quality of the whites than the reds. (6/2019)
