Tasting Notes

A whiff of the exotic is present on the spice aromas of lychee, orange peel and soft wood nuances. Once again there is fine density to the succulent and caressing flavors that conclude in a saliva-inducing finale that is noticeably warm. I would suggest serving this moderately stony effort cooler than normal. Notes Combo18 Combo20 Issue Score Text27 Maturity Date NoWeb current WineLibraryID "From a parcel in Charmes Dessus that abuts Puligny. A gentle dollop of wood sets off petrol-infused aromas of ripe white and yellow orchard fruit, especially white peach. The sleek and almost painfully intense middle weight flavors display excellent detail and minerality on the beautifully long finale. This isn't quite as harmonious as the Bouchères though it may ultimately catch it if allowed sufficient time. I would add that Ballot is not exaggerating in calling his 2019s magnificent as a number of his whites are knock-out good.

Criots lies to the north of the village, close to Volnay, and though not terribly chalky the soil is quite stony. The wine itself seems to reflect this, showing a lovely mix of fragrance and stoniness whilst displaying good power on the finish. The oak is subtly entwined (around 15% new) and there is a touch of spice and sense of purity. An excellent village wine.

Score: 88 - 90
