"A touch more colour, lots of lees. Also a little toasty torrefaction not seen in the other wines which may come from the barrel. Significant weight here on the palate, 13.4%, so just as much the clay as the sunshine. Very small grapes here, Franck tells me.

"A much more open nose, more reductive today but a noble style if rather obvious. Bigger in the mouth, extra energy, really here is everything – sweeter too. Intense finishing, slowly delivering some floral notes rather than exploding with florals. Very long. Always one of my favourite wines here."
