91 points Chris Kissack (Winedoctor): "These vines were planted in 1974, on a terroir of schist and micaschist, in Le Landreau. The vinification is traditional, in subterranean cuve, and it was bottled in April 2019. It presents a smoky and minerally character on the nose, which parts to reveal orange pip and apricot stone. The palate feels softly polished, very welcoming as we might expect from the vintage, with a delicate acid backbone running through the middle which gives it some sense of balance. A charming style, with attractive bitterness adding interest, but carrying the softer structure of the vintage. (Feb 2020)"
