(from a total of 1.06 ha with 65+ year old vines in the climats of Les Treux and Cruots with .63 ha and .43 ha, respectively). An admirably pure, elegant and airy nose reflects notes of essence of red currant, rose petal and discreet spice nuances that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The round and transparent medium weight plus flavors possess fine precision on the balanced and markedly firm finish that displays excellent length. This is more muscular than it usually is; indeed the word robust comes to mind, yet it remains elegant and refined. Lovely stuff. (92-94)/2032+
