Bright, pale yellow. Penetrating aromas of pineapple and rock lifted by a limey topnote. The palate boasts terrific energy and cut, with pineapple and spice flavors delivering excellent intensity. Finishes with a building saline, iodine-y whiplash of a finish. When I commented to Mestre on the cleanliness of his cellar, he responded: 'It's my kitchen'.

Pure but reticent perfume of citrus fruits, pineapple, crushed rock and flowers. Sappy, densely packed and seamless, offering lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its pineapple and crushed stone flavors. More refined than the previous premier crus here and much longer and smoother on the rising finish. In an adamantly dry, mineral-driven style, but there's already a lot going on here. This wine softened nicely with air, showing attractive sweetness of fruit without losing any of its energy or back-end lift.

"A floral-, apple- and stone-flavored white, boasting a tightly wound structure and a tightfisted finish. Hints of spice emerge, but overall, this needs time to strut its stuff. Best from 2019 through 2027."

"Focused, linear and very detailed with amazing acid tension in this wine. The wine vibrates with acidity and the stony flavors and minerals are found in the finish. A glorious wine with a long finish."
