(from a 1.1 ha parcel of 55+ year old vines). A notably floral suffused nose displays notes of green tea, various dark berries, earth and a hint of the sauvage. There is good freshness and verve to the elegant and refined medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the explosively long and impeccably well-balanced finish. This isn’t quite as structured as some vintages of this storied wine yet note that I said “isn’t quite” because this will still need ample time to realize its full and considerable potential. 93/2027+
