“From two separate parcels of vines, the larger of which is in the heart of the “amphitheater” from which the finest examples of Vaudésir originate. Perhaps the freshest of any of these grand crus to this point, which is interesting as Vaudésir tends to always be one of the very ripest of the GCs given how the configuration of the vineyards collects heat. While the nose is certainly ripe, it is also airy and elegant with floral, spice and orchard fruit aromas complementing the quinine and citrus notes that can also be found on the powerful, muscular and borderline robust flavours that somehow manage to remain refined and deliver the considerable dry extract with grace on the explosive finish. This is generous on the mid-palate but it’s almost breathtaking as to how fast the finish tightens up. Impressive. 92-94 points.” – Burghound.
