2012 and 2011 White Burgundies (Sep 2013)

(from vines harvested between September 6 and 12): Pale silver-straw color. Enticing, pure aromas of lemon, white plum, wild herbs and menthol, lifted by a hawthorn topnote. Pliant, silky and fat but also fresh and precise, with complex, concentrated flavors of lemon, grapefruit pith, spices and powdered stone. Lovely classic vintage with texture, balance and depth. Finishes very long, with subtle sweetness and noteworthy clarity. A repeating note of menthol calls for patience, though.
