    " Pale bright yellow. Pineapple, lemon and crushed stone on the refined, subtle nose. Seamless and generous but at the same time juicy and penetrating, with strong minerality contributing to the impression of inner-mouth tension. Most impressive today on the delicate, slowly mounting back half, which shows outstanding energy and citrusy power on the end."

    "Nose has stone fruit characters and minerality with nicely toned oak. Fine, full flavor, concentrated, citric and racy. Taut and tangy, very mineral and pure, yet it also has depth of flavour and considerable complexity too."

    Grade: Highly Recommended

    "A background note of wood toast doesnt materially detract from the overall sense of purity to the floral and mineral reduction aromas that telegraph the presence of a firm stoniness on the highly energetic and equally pure medium weight flavors that evidence plenty of citrus influence on the explosive and bone dry finish. Similar to several other wines in the Prieur range in 2010 there is an almost Chablis-like salinity to the finale that displays genuinely remarkable persistence. This understated wine is a classic Perrires of real class and grace."

    "Mashed green apples, cream and a little leafy element. Bundles of acid, but all in balance. Nervy. Impressive, but much more conventional than his Clos de Mazeray Meursault."
