Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2017 Oct.)

Notes of mineral reduction combine with curiously minty aromas of citrus, pear and acacia blossom. As is usually the case the broad-shouldered flavors are more intense and powerful than those of the Preuses while displaying an almost aggressive salinity on the strikingly persistent, sappy and palate staining finale that evidences plenty of citrus zest character. This moderately structured effort will require at least some patience.

Vinous - Score: 95 (2019 Nov.)

Pale silver-lemon color. Aromas of lemon ice and minerals complicated by nuances of flowers and almond. At once penetrating and tactile, with juicy, very dry flavors of wet stone, menthol and spices conveying a strong impression of saline minerality. Boasts lovely density and class--and balanced from the start even if it will unwind over the next couple decades in bottle Dauvissat, who added yeasts to this wine due to the hail, said he'd wait ten years. (just 30 hectoliters per hectare produced; this was the first vineyard Dauvissat harvested--on September 2, the second day after the hail storm)
