Winemaker Notes Bright gold color. Intense aromas of exotic fruit (mango) mixed with yellow fleshed fruit (peach) underlined by mineral and iodine notes. Complex and broad shouldered. Beautiful freshness on a well-balanced structure. Elegant finish with beautiful mineral nuances. Critical Acclaim James Suckling 94 This makes me think about the first pineapples that made it to Europe from the Caribbean during the 17th century, because it has a haunting nose of pineapple that's anything but simple. Although the fruit here is very ripe, the special vitality and firm mineral structure of this appellation lies behind it, becoming ever more prominent as the wine flows steadily over the palate. Although the finish is quite firm, it remains both subtle and precise. Drink or hold. Decanter 94 A lovely wine, with notes of green apple, ripe apricot and quince, coloured with floral and mineral accents. The texture is broad and deep, with a substantial heft to the wine, but enough freshness to balance the inherent richness.This half-hectare, single-block parcel of white Corton represents the northernmost vineyard of the domaine. A further 0.15ha of the stony soil has recently been replanted. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented in cask (one-quarter new). Wine Spectator 93 This rich white has a buttery component accompanying the peach, lemon and oak spice flavors. Intense yet harmonious, and should really hit its stride in a year or two. Fine length. Best from 2024 Burghound.com 93 Here too the fruit is suppressed by a veil of reduction. There is outstanding intensity to the sleek and beautifully delineated larger-scaled flavors that reflect evident power and minerality on the impressively persistent finish. This is excellent and a wine that is built to repay up to a decade of cellaring. Jasper Morris 93 Mostly planted in 2004, having switched from pinot. Their vines share the rocky outcrop with those of the Hospices de Beaune. 14.2% alcohol. Rich lemon color. The bouquet is quite punchy too. A faint touch of coconut from the oak, but it corresponds well. This is powerful but I think the terroir can carry it. Rocks in the sunshine come across in the flavor profile, but the grapes are in no way scorched. Pretty good length too, this is not for the faint hearted, though the terroir has ultimately managed to withstand the heat of the vintage.
