A red wine! Here the nose is much tighter, eventually a few dark berries are released from the glass. This is lithe and very silky. Just a super expansion of intensity in the mid-palate. This is a tad shorter than the Santenots I think, but I love the sleek racehorse style – it is just a little Corton-esque – lovely.
Medium lemon-yellow. The nose is quite high-toned with faint, but not excessive, estery notes over a base of mainly pear fruit. The palate is a little fatter than the Chartron, quite silky and also shows good acidity. There is some intensity of fruit, but despite some minerality it is delivered in a rather dense and unyielding fashion. Excellent length. This is a very good and very well proportioned wine, but I miss some engagement.
