In 2017 Silex Noir finished with 13.7g RS and 5.4g acidity. It and the Trois Argiles are grown and made identically; both have a strong, chalky mineral and acid core to support their sweetness, with the Silex Noir usually reading as racier and flintier in character.

Wine SpectatorA silky, mineral-driven version, featuring wet stone and sel gris notes that stand firm from start to finish, underscoring lemon zest, green plum and quince flavors. A bit taut now, but shows incredible precision, depth and complexity, which should all shine through after a few more years of aging. Best from 2021 through 2031. 200 cases imported.
