"(made from vineyards in Vergisson and Solutré): Bright gold-tinged yellow. Broader and riper on the nose than the 2016 Mâcon-Villages and Saint-Véran bottlings, with an element of toasty oak complementing aromas of yellow peach, mirabelle, acacia flower and menthol. Silky, plush and broad but not heavy, with stone fruit and spice flavors still a bit youthfully aggressive and in need of another year in bottle to settle down. There's a sweetness here that's not shown by the other '16s from this producer, but it's nicely leavened by strong salty minerality. Finishes dry and persistent, with salty and spicy notes. I would not be surprised if this wine merited 90 points by next summer. - Stephen Tanzer"
