Ripe lemon and crisp apples give the fruity element to this still young-tasting wine. There are only the slightest hints of a more toasty character, while the texture is tight, impressively full in the mouth. Made from Premier Cru vineyards in Chigny-lès-Roses, this is ready to drink, but will be even better from 2016.
