  • International Wine Cellar
    Medium yellow-gold. Young, pure and rather restrained on the nose, with the wine's oak component currently dominating exotic fruits, hazelnut and honey. Quite opulent on the attack, then large-scaled and solidly structured in the middle palate, withflavors of apricot, honey and clove. Big but not heavy, and not yet showing the flavor interest of the 2003. But this is quite closed today. Finishes thick, strong and long, with notes of vanilla, spices and nuts.

    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. A big rich wine, with lemon tart aromas, a plump, juicy palate, and perhaps a slight lack of purity and finesse. But the lush fruit and spiciness are hard to resist. Drink 2008-30.
