TASTING NOTES

A terse, stoic, delineated bouquet with scents of wet limestone and sea spray, just a slight menthol note developing with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. A very pretty, elegant Bienvenue that reveals hints of blood orange and sour lemon on the precise, persistent finish. This is a gorgeous Bienvenue.

Neil Martin, Vinous.

Aromas of pear, mandarin oil, white flowers and warm bread. A medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered wine that's textural and muscular, with a lively spine of acidity and a long, mineral finish. 

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

This is aromatically quite similar to the Pucelles but with perhaps just a bit more floral influences. The succulent and delicious though notably intense flavors possess excellent punch if not quite the same mid-palate density, all wrapped in a highly complex, balanced and harmonious finish. This too is wonderfully refined, classy and very stylish. 

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Light in colour, with a tight and tense nose, there is a thread of steely salinity through the middle. Thereafter there is a background of currently inexpressive white fruit, fair intensity. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
