Part of the Montmains premier cru, but bottled by Pinson separately, this is very pure and steely, a wine with a cool character. There are hints of apricots although the main thrust of this wine is towards apples, crisp lemon and acidity. The aftertaste has a more honeyed character typical of the vintage.
