Generous amounts of wood fight slightly with the otherwise very fresh aromas of plum, wet stone, dark berries and humus. There is excellent richness to the mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent energy on the supple and suave mid-palate that possesses a relatively sophisticated mouth feel before culminating in a well-balanced and persistent finish. Even though the Lavaut is consistently Mortet's best 1er, it's presently no more complex or persistent than the Champeaux. I should also note that this is a bit too woody for my taste though it's not over the top.
