    Sleek and stony, with apple, spice and butter flavors. Creamy mid-palate, leading to a persistent and fresh finish. Shows fine length and harmony. Drink now through 2020.

    "(from deep marl soil; one needs to be careful with the date of picking these south-facing vines, says Vincent, adding that he harvested this parcel first in both 2013 and 2015; aged in 99% new oak): Rich, bright yellow. Brooding, rather reticent nose shows more flowers, hazelnut and grilled almond than primary fruits. Large-scaled, broad and mouthfilling, offering lovely palate coverage as well as noteworthy textural finesse. A huge wine but can't quite match the Combettes for precision."

    "Generous but not dominant wood frames a broad-ranging nose of citrus, pear, apple and floral scents. The delicious and punchy middle weight flavors that possess better depth and length on the balanced finale."
