Tasting Notes

Score: 90James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, February 2008

Gorgeous aromas of dried pineapple and apricot follow through to a full-bodied palate, with sweet fruit and a long, long finish. Best ever from here?

Score: 92/94James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2006

Dominant impression is of green fruit acidity but quite good depth of sweetness and considerable astringency. Chewy and sappy and zappy. Drink 2015-28

Score: 16Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2006

Medium yellow. Fruit-driven aromas of peach, orange and candied pineapple. Juicy, spicy and firm-edged, with the pineapple flavor buttressed by lively acidity. The lingering sweetness shows good grip and focus. A good early showing for this wine.

Score: 87/90Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, December 2007

This cru now seems to have rediscovered its consistency and undoubted class. There is a lovely, scented freshness and the flavour shows richness, sweetness and length on the finish. A very stylish wine. 4 stars
