Additional Information

"Finer but less fruity on the nose than the Champs-Pimont, with hints of crushed rock and flowers. Then almost surprisingly fat and round in the mouth, with a distinctly glyceral texture and slightly exotic saline and lichee flavors. Less incisive today than the Champs-Pimont but this is also rather backward." 88+ points -Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, Sept.-Oct. 2007
