The 2020 whites are fruity with very beautiful acidities and offer a great aromatic complexity. Despite the hot temperatures of summer, they are well-balanced, supported by freshness. The premiers’ crus and grands crus are still ageing on lees, they take their time but undeniably gain in fullness, richness, and aromatic complexity. We accompany them gently during this long process.
Straw yellow in color with gray flashes, on the nose it is explosive, notes of citrus fruits as it oxygenates certain notes of honey and vanilla, on the palate it is spontaneous with a fresh and persistent acidity.
