Professional Reviews

RJon Wine

Bright canary yellow color; almond, fresh macadamia nut, apple nose; tasty, oily textured, poised, youthful, stony, tart citrus, almond and mineral palate; medium-plus finish 93+ pts. (it's wonderful to taste a good sample like this, after having tasted such a badly oxidized bottle last year)



As de la Morinière suggests, this is a good deal more powerful than the 2000 version but it is not quite as bright or quite as focused. That said, this is a very impressive effort with big, almost massive aromas of earth, ripe green fruits such as apples and pears leading to equally big, powerful flavors that offer great mouthfeel, all of which is underpinned by plenty of minerality and more than adequate buffering acidity. This is extremely long already but this should continue to improve for 7 to 10 years and hold for much longer than that. (Drink starting 2008)
