Packaging: OWC.
Score: 93 AM.
"From parcels measuring 0.57 ha in Clos du Roi, 1.2 ha in Bressandes and 0.5 ha in Renardes though only 1.74 ha of this are currently in production. A ripe, fresh and layered nose combines notes of plum, spice, earth and plenty of floral influences. There is fine richness to the relatively supple middle weight flavors that possess a velvety mid-palate mouthfeel along with reasonable if not special density, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, balanced and sneaky long finish where a hints of warmth and sweetness eventually emerge. This minerally effort needs to develop better depth but the potential appears to be present for that to occur." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jan 2010
Provenance: The Cedrus Cellar
Notes: Banded
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $11,000
