"Well integrated, this wine is bright, tight and fruity. A touch of minerality as well as citrus balances the riper yellow fruits. Drink this wine now. - ROGER VOSS"

"(from vines averaging 40 years of age, located next to the winery; 100% done in cuve): Pale yellow. Lovely lift to the aromas of crunchy citrus fruits and apple, herbs and flowers. Not a particularly fleshy style but juicy and moderately intense, showing attractive spicy cut to its pink grapefruit and lemon flavors complicated by exotic fruits. Less deep than the estate's Saint-Véran, from soil with a stronger clay content.- Stephen Tanzer"

"Gingery and warm, this gentle Mâcon has the meatiness of a veal stock, adding fullness and some complexity to its grape flavors. Chill it for country pâté."

"Full and ripe, this wine also has good acidity that gives a lively edge to the yellow-fruit flavors. Along with the peach and apricot fruits, it presents refreshing crispness. The aftertaste delivers a great lift of acidity."

"Ripe and full in the mouth, this generous wine has yellow fruits and a warm, rich texture. Flavors of freshness flow right through the wine. Balanced and smooth at the end, it is ready to drink. — R.V."
