Critic Notes

Just a single Jadot barrel of this white wine this year, so it was very generous of Frédéric Barnier to allow us to taste it. The quality of the vineyard sings out in its richness and fresh, almondy grace, but it’s vivid, nuanced and structured, too. Jun 2017, Andrew Jefford, www.decanter.com

Score: 94-96/100Decanter

Pronounced nose of rich and ripe stone fruit, fresh citrus and pine nut. Opulent, rich and mouth-coating, but with plenty of supportive acidity and freshness. Peachy, almost fleshy, stone fruit and a mineral saline backbone. This is serious, beautifully balanced and bright. Jul 2017, FINE+RARE
