(a blend of fruit coming from 35+ and 75+ year old vines all in Charmes Dessus, which is the best part directly below Perrières and abutting Combettes). An expressive and very pure nose is composed of aromas of hazelnut, citrus, acacia blossom and extract of peach and apricot. There is terrific underlying tension and plenty of minerality to the medium-bodied flavors that possess almost painful intensity on the explosively persistent finish. This is first-rate though moderate patience will be required. 93/2018+
