(From 2004 Vintage) Discreet if not invisible wood pairs with elegant and refined green apple, spice and slightly exotic fruit aromas and round, intense and moderately austere full-bodied flavors that are supple yet pack plenty of muscle and punch on the powerfully long finish.
(From 2006 Vintage) This Grand Cru wine has a citrus bouquet with a rich tropical fruit character. It is intensely powerful and fills the mouth with a multiplicity of flavours ending in a fine, steely finish which lingers on the palate for minutes. This wine needs 4 to 5 years to open up and can age for up to 20 years. An ample and powerful nose. The mouth offers a rich palet of aromas: fresh almond, honey and melted vanilla. The wine is very well-structured. It is already harmonious but be patient if you want to fully enjoy it: it needs a few more years to reach its peak and to fully express its complexity.
