Bright yellow. Sexy, expressive aromas of lemon oil, fresh apricot, hazelnut and oak. Suave and broad on entry, conveying a touch of sweetness and a fine-grained texture to its flavors of lemon, white peach and spices, then turns a bit leaner but more focused and citrussy on the back half. Doesn't offer the body or the palate presence of the estate's top Meursault crus (there was no frost effect here and the yield was a healthy 40 hectoliters per hectare) but this is still rather youthfully taut. Finishes dry, classic and long. I like the combination of stone and citrus fruits and underlying saline minerality.
