"Tradition": meaning very precise practices and a devotion to the art of wine. "Modernity": meaning respect for ancestral techniques through advanced equipment.
"Really quite rich and very sumptuous when tasted immediately after the Girardin wines. Lots of jewelly sweetness. Fun and rich. Good balance. Pure pleasure. Great balance." 17/20 points, Jancis Robinson
