(from a .24 ha parcel of 20+ year old vines planted in a mix of rock and sand). There is a trace of reduction present but not so much as to completely mask the spice elements. Otherwise there is really lovely tension to the intensely mineral-driven medium-bodied and beautifully precise flavors that culminate in an understated and mildly austere finish that delivers excellent depth and length. This too possesses excellent development potential but like the Aux Thorey at least some patience is strongly advised. 93/2028+
