(1998 Vintage) This mature, well balanced, elegant wine has a lively, frank attack typical of the great vintages. Roasted, toasty aromas, butter and pastry together with fragrances of citrus and wild peach create rich, aromatic complexity leading on to flavours of honey and delicate exotic notes. The length is superb with aromas of pastries, fine touches of hazelnut and honey to complete this magnificent “cuvee”.
impressive golden colour with a strong nose and savory entry, similar to Krug. quite a bit more bubbles than expected, giving it a more rugged but long finish. 12/2011 showing more class than earlier bottle. finish and nose giving similar to Krug, although a bit less finished. lovely.
