Ratings

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast. "Ripe, juicy yellow pear and honey carry the nose. The palate hits with a touch of sweetness that boosts the ripe pear fruit but, it is countered by zesty lemon and a pleasantly bitter streak of phenolics. The result is a rounded, powerful and concentrated wine. Drink now–2028".

Production Notes

To craft our Grands Crus, we use perfectly ripe and healthy grapes from carefully cultivated and selected vineyards. The yields are low and the vineyards are generally planted with old vines. For these wines we focus on terroir or vineyard expressions that influence the aromas, composition and true character of each Grand Cru.

Vineyard Notes

The 2015 vintage began with a very mild spring, followed by high temperatures in June and July. There were a few episodes of sever drough but overall the vintage was near perfect with excellent ripening on the vine. The wines from produced from this vineage showcase an exceptional balance of alcohol, residual sugar and acidity.
