2016 Croix Senaillet Saint-Véran - 88 PTS - VINOUS

2016 Croix Senaillet Saint-Véran - 88 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(this is the estate's best-known bottling, representing an assemblage of 30 parcels): Bright gold-tinged yellow. Deep, fruit-driven aromas of apple, pear, pèche de vigne and spices. Supple, spicy, easygoing wine, but nicely framed by a mineral/citrus edge. A bit weightier than the Mâcon-Davayé, and longer and more energetic on the finish. - Stephen Tanzer"
