Vinous – 92
Pale yellow-gold. Reticent but vibrant aromas of pineapple, lemon, mirabelle, white flowers and stone. Silky on entry, then minerally, brisk and firm in the middle, with a penetrating quality shown by very few examples from this vintage.Conveys an impression of energy.Finishes with explosive length, uncompromising dryness and stony perfume. Dauvissat told me he threw out the grilled grapes but included a lot of tiny dried grapes for their sheer concentration and the acidity they added.
