TASTING NOTES

"Unquestionably the most elegant nose in the range though it took a good 30 minutes for the initially reluctant aromas to emerge to reveal spicy white flower and pungent lemon peel notes that are also picked up by the pure, intense and balanced flavors that are perhaps a touch less powerful and focused than usual. To be sure, this is lovely and still exceptionally young but appears to be destined for "mere" excellence rather than true greatness." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 31

"Medium bright yellow. Reserved apple and pear aromas brightened by a chalky component; this comes across as less exotic than the Bienvenue. Suave on entry, then impressively intense in the mid-palate, with lovely restrained sweetness and outstanding cut and energy. The peach and pear flavors are framed and lifted by firm acidity and strong stony minerality. Very impressive." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
