This is a sumptuous wine as befits a Chardonnay from one of the great white Grand Crus. Intense acidity is spiced by the new-wood aging. A strongly mineral character also marks this powerful wine with generous white and yellow fruits and a zesty, tangy aftertaste. It has a great future. Drink from 2025.
