An overtly floral-suffused nose exhibits additional breadth in the form of citrus, apple and petrol scents. There is both better precision and minerality to the chalky and textured medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a chiseled and saline finish. Drinking range: 2022 - Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2018)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Back to the more creamy aroma here and better balance of ripe fruit and winemaking/barrel and lees texture. This wine is beautifully balanced between the oak-derived texture and the fruit freshness and purity. Drinking range: 2019 - 2026 Rating: 17 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Feb 2018)

(malo finished): Pale, bright straw-yellow color. Sexy scents of apple, ginger and nutmeg. Supple on entry, then juicy in the middle palate and more minerally than the Meursault Charmes. This is aging in 40% new oak but the wood element is subtle. Wonderful energy and precision here, conveying considerable éclat to its flavors of lemon, lime, crushed stone and flowers. The firmest and most minerally of these 2016 premier crus, not to mention the longest on the aftertaste. Offers superb potential. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Nov 2017)
