Warm, but not an extremely hot year and with normal rain. Hazy, deep straw-yellow. Super-savoury and almost a little like Joly's Clos de la Coulée de Serrant. Getting more into focus with aeration, showing savoury yellow fruit. Stony hints. Honeyed yet not sweet on the palate and with a salty, minerally finish. Viscous mouthfeel and finely textured.
