A discreet application of wood allows the airy, pure and elegant aromas of violet, plum and exotic tea to shine. There is a cool and restrained mouth feel to the punchy medium weight flavors that offer good richness yet also pretty good delineation on the soil and mineral-inflected finish that is dusty, balanced and solidly persistent. It's rare that even a very good Chatelots can match an average Fuées but that is the case here.
