The grapes producing “De l’Orée” come from the plot ‘Les Murets’ in the Eastern part of the hill. A vibrant nose with aromas of white fruit, honeysuckle, quince, spices and hazelnut. Rich and creamy with pear, walnut and a hint of quinine, it has impeccable balance and layer upon layer of texture and flavour.

Immediately richer on the nose than the Méal, with almond milk and poached peach. Very full, very opulent in flavour and texture, with good persistence. This has good intensity, but perhaps without the liveliness of cooler years. The mineral finish neatens everything up however and lengthens the overall impression. 95-97 points.
