"...limited to two barrels, as it is each year (both of them new). The nose seems rather aloof at first, much less forward than the Blanchot-Dessous that preceded it. Then it unfurls with scents of granite, jasmine and a touch of damp undergrowth. The palate is very well balanced, beautifully poised on the entry and then...pow! That intense sorbet-fresh fruit washes over the mouth and is absolutely thrilling. Harmonious and elegant, this is a worthy follow-up to the excellent 2012 and 2013 Bienvenues. "
