TASTING NOTES

"Extraordinary complexity and finesse are the hallmarks of this earth-scented, butter-laced, honeyed, lemon-flavored gem. The finish seems to never end thanks to all that great acidity. Better after 1998." Wine Spectator
(WS, 04/15/1995)

Rating: 91
Drink from: 1998


"Fairly pale yellow. Vibrant aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, licorice, and fresh herbs, plus a petrolly riesling-like pungency. Moderately thick, racy and stylish, with flavors similar to the aromas. Very youthful and given clarity by sound acidity. The petrol note carries through to the long, bright aftertaste. Very '88, and very Barsac." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(IWC, 07/01/1998)
