Fine balance underpins the pear, peach and grappe fruit flavors in the rich, round withe, which shows moderate length

(the fruit for this comes 70 % from Puligny and 30 % from Meursault : Les Sétilles is a brand name with no other significance, 50 % older wood). A discreet touch of wood frames fresh, bright and cool aromas of straw, lemon and grass that merge into nicely detailed, clean and dry flavors that offer good balance if limited depth.
