(from a parcel of vines in Bressandes). A strikingly complex nose of dried rose petal, green apple, lemon peel and a distinct floral note complements perfectly the well muscled and powerful flavors brimming with dry extract and built on a base of solid minerality. This is a textured, concentrated and mildly exotic example yet it remains precise, pure and balanced if notably austere on the backend at present. 93/2014+
