Winemaker Notes

#60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Weighty, but lithe and balanced, with gorgeous, alluring notes of honeysuckle, macadamia nut, white asparagus, lemon curd, quinine and straw all carrying through seamlessly on the long, invigorating finish. This beautiful wine transcends the vintage. Drink now through 2012.

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits

While this is clearly a wine that needs several years to show its best, its depth of flavor is multidimensional and immediately alluring, demonstrating a dark, almost meaty concentration and an elegantly silky texture.

Greenish yellow. A kaleidoscopic nose combines lime zest, intense minerality, spicecake and white flowers. Wonderfully concentrated yet sharply focused, offering a suave blend of bracing citrus and mineral flavors and outstanding richness Strikingly deep and pure wine, finishing with strong mineral cut and superb lift and persistence. The young Benjamin Dagueneau is now in charge at this superb estate following the tragic death of his father Didier in the crash of an ultralight plane he was piloting in September of 2008.
