Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AM90-92 OUTSTANDING TOP VALUE! A completely different aromatic profile presents notes of petrol, resin, pear and soft spice wisps. Generously proportioned and very rounded medium-bodied flavors exude a subtle minerality on the textured, clean and moderately dry finish that offers even better depth and length. Good stuff that is built-to-age yet should drink well young if that is your preference.
RP89-91 The 2016 Santenay 1er Cru Clos des Gravi_res Blanc offers subtle traces of orange blossom and blackcurrant leaf on the nose. I suspect that it will develop more intensity by the time of bottling. The palate is brisk and saline on the entry with good acidity, very saline with a noticeable marine/iodine influence toward the satisfying finish. This is an intriguing Santenay Blanc that will be fascinating to watch evolve.
AG86-89 (the six-year-old vines here yielded low-sugar, high-pH grapes but the old vines produced fruit with better balance, according to Lamy): Pale yellow. A bit sharp on the nose, hinting at herbs, mint and metallic minerality. Delivers good lemony energy and cut but comes across as rather skinny, with some unabsorbed acidity. Not my style.
