"This is a wine of power, energy and breadth, made from 3ha of vines in this fine right bank site just south of the grands crus. Like Michel’s village Chablis it’s still an infant, but you can sense its density and power quietly building like water behind a dam. Elemental, brooding notes reminiscent of plant sap and ground stone lurk in that resonant, aromatic inarticulacy, yet its mute force succeeds in seeming concentrated, close-grained and sheer in the mouth. 


Decanter Magazine, June 2018, Andrew Jefford


"A very impressive and quite classical nose with grapefruit, lime peel, nectarine and dried flowers with a stony edge. The palate’s very neatly forged with a wealth of ripe white peaches. A very succulent, long and complete shape. Drink now or hold."


Nick Stock, 93 Points


 "Small crops in 2016, with this producer down about 50%. Packs in a bit of weight and richness, but keeps itself pretty tidy. Brine and subtle fino sherry top notes over apple and lemon, slight creaminess, hazelnut and aniseed. Savoury flavour, fine powdery texture, bruised apple with lemon on a briny and leesy finish. Pretty solid"


Gary Walsh, Wine Front, October 2018
