It is an energetic, vibrant wine endowed with significant floral lift, intense minerality and great overall balance. There is a cool austerity about the 2010 that will appeal to classicists. According to proprietor Jean-Charles le Bault de la Moriniere, the small, loose clusters of the vintage give the wine its powerful personality...96" WA 08/12
