Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

(from the estate's oldest vines, at 66 years of age; but a tiny cuvee, at just four barrels) Cooler on the nose than the Batard, showing citrus fruits and hazelnut. Less full in the mouth, with juicy but tight flavors of citrus peel and flowers supported by firm underlying minerality. In shape and density, this reminded me of the Combettes.



(from the oldest vines of the Domaine planted in 1939, aged in 45% new oak). Elegant and remarkably complex aromas of honeysuckle, peach, pear and citrus trimmed in subtle notes of brioche merge into sophisticated, pure and silky flavors that are understated and gorgeously pure, all wrapped in a hugely long finish of simply stunning intensity. As good as the Combettes is, and it is indeed most impressive, this is a clear step up. 94/2012+
