Half of these vines are 30 years old, the other half between 60 and 70; the crop level was held to 25 hectoliters per hectare by hail, vs. a normal 45 to 60, said Mestre... Bright yellow. Aromas of fresh peach, apricot and nut oil are lifted by lime and crushed stone nuances. Densely packed, fine-grained and tight but not hard, with spice and pepper notes currently dominating the palate. Finishes saline and stony, with good verve.

Pale, bright yellow. Orange blossom and crushed rock on the nose. More tactile and fruity than the Charmes; also a bit sweeter and more inviting in the early going, offering firm-edged, energetic flavours of white peach and saline minerality. Finishes with a light touch and excellent length.

Appealing cashew-nut aromas, very refined with subtle use of oak. A winningly delicate wine with balance and harmony. Subtle, restrained, fine and long, A delicious and finely-crafted wine.

"This white combines oyster shell, toasty oak, peach, lemon and apple aromas and flavors, showing harmony and length. Delivers fine intensity and leaves a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2023."
