La Princée villages is a blend of ten small village parcels totalling just under three hectares. One-third of these vines are now over 60 years old, with the remainder planted in 1985 and 2000. All the parcels are sited in the cooler, east-facing Saint-Aubin combe (or valley), on chalky, mineral soils.
A cool, pure and restrained nose grudgingly offers up notes of citrus, pear and soft floral scents. The highly energetic flavors are also quite precise and chiseled on the equally bone dry finale. 87-89 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 71
