"A light gloss and a touch of hazelnut, with savory sapidity. An inviting Auxey. Pure and rather reserved, with good energy."

"A floral accent to a mineral width of aroma – very attractive. In the mouth, I would think of Meursault with the finely divided, almost spicy complexity. Direct and intense in the finish… This is great, I’d be happy to have this as the house wine next year."
