(from purchased fruit in both Aloxe and Pernand). A pungent and well-layered nose exhibits notes of apple skin, citrus zest, white flower and a wisp of wet stone. There is fine vibrancy and very impressive richness to the generously proportioned, dense and sappy broad-shouldered flavors that deliver good if not truly special persistence on the citrusy finale. I wouldn’t describe this as classically styled but rather as a seductive and forward C-C. (89-92)/2021+
