(from several parcels totaling 2.5 ha with two-thirds of it in Chapelot and the remainder in Pied d’Aloup). Here too there is ample mineral reduction character present on the elegant, pure and airy aromas of pear, apple and white flowers that are trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. There is excellent punch and intensity to the more precise middle weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while exhibiting a gorgeously persistent finish. This doesn’t appear to have suffered much if at all from the hail damage. 92/2023+
