Here the nose is similar to the regular cuvée but with the addition of mineral reduction wisps. There is a bit more wood evident in the mouth on the rich, concentrated, powerful and palate-coating flavours thanks to the abundant level of dry extract, all wrapped in a bitter lemon and saline-inflected finale that offers just a bit more overall depth and persistence.

Charismatic and open on the palate with lovely creamy aromas, baked apple and stone fruits too. Delivers all the complexity expected of premier cru. 17+/20 points, Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com (1/2018).
