This is a combination of 3 Premier crus, a wine which makes you wonder if there should be little bit more blending in Burgundy. Sacrilege maybe, but the quality of the wine speaks for itself. Broad and expansive palate, the sort that quickens the pulse, with its seamless amplitude. Stone fruits, lime, lavender, honey, subtle cream and spice. The texture reminds me of a fine Alsatian Riesling, but with plenty more weight and chewy extract.
3 1er crus combined: Combes, Perrières and les Creots – about the same of each – made first time in 2016 due to the frost, ‘the name is from my maternal grandmother who died about the same time as the frost in 2016. We continue…’ A tighter but deeper nose, again. Hmm, plenty of acidity again, but friendlier, very silky with just a faint plushness to the texture. Long, slow-moving waves of finishing flavour. This is excellent! Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report, October 2018
