Bright, pale lemon-yellow. Steely aromas of grapefruit, lemon and mint. Quite rich and sweet, with a slightly high-toned character, but has enough acidity to maintain its verve and balance. This very solaire site was a strong positive factor in the cooler 2011 vintage, noted Seguier. Pliant and very long on the aftertaste. A splendid showing today, although Seguier noted that the 2011 grand crus, which were bottled in December of 2012, are just now beginning to emerge from a closed phase.
