John Gilman 92-93+ points (rated Mar/Apr 2018) - The malo here had just finished at the time of my visit. Elodie Michelot noted that the frost damage here was confined mostly to the bottom of her rows in Cailles, with the upper two-thirds of each row nearly untouched, so the yields ended up being better than she had feared right after the frost. This still has a bit of CO2 in it from the malo, but with some coaxing, it is easy to see that it is going to be very good indeed, as it eventually offers up scents of black plums, black cherries, espresso, quail and a fine base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with ripe tannins, a good core and impressive length and grip. The wine was still obviously agitated at the time of my visit, but there is real quality waiting in the wings here.
