(from a parcel in the sub-climat En la Richarde plus another in Folatières proper toward Champ Gain at the very top of the vineyard; vine age is 30+ years and it was aged in 1/3 new oak). The most elegant wine to this point with pure and delicate green fruit aromas that possess anise, lemon and mint hints, all of which can also be found on the minerally, racy and energetic middle weight flavors brimming with minerality on the palate staining finish of considerable length. There is very good if not stunning depth but the material is here such that this could actually be better than my rating in time. 92/2013+
