International Wine CellarPale yellow. High-pitched aromas of crushed stone, quinine, fennel and flint. Almost painfully intense and uncompromising, with steely yellow fruit and crushed rock flavors conveying an impression of volume without any weight. Like sucking on a mouthful of rocks. Leaves a coating of dusty stone behind on the palate that's hard to scrape off: this seems even stronger after you swallow it! A stunning premier cru that seems destined for a long and graceful evolution in bottle.
