INSIDE BURGUNDY JASPER MORRIS 2018
Pale colour with a light green tint, reduction evident. This has marvellous intensity on the palate and the oak usage is subdued. Great acid balance, very special. But the reduction is too pronounced, costing a point.
WINE SPECTATOR 2017
A stony, chalk-infused white, with notes of peach, apple, lemon, butterscotch and pastry. Vibrant and racy, with a slightly hard edge on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2028.
WINE ENTHUSIAST 2016
Named after the ruined abbey which the vineyard surrounds, this is a smooth, generous and beautifully opulent wine. The vines, owned by the Leflaive family, give a bold, spicy wine, rich in white stone fruits, intense acidity and a firm mineral texture. There is just enough toasty flavor to give the wine extra complexity. Drink this impressive wine from 2021.
