    full mouth (especially with a swirl for 3 min!) yet not oak or butter or minerals; long finish; very nice! (elegant tropical fruit and lemon grass)

    (From 2004 Vintage) A younger and somewhat simpler version of the wine above, it shares its strong bent towards the green side of the spectrum, and with its convincing fruit, bright acidity and ability to age for a few years, it has every chance of catching up the 2003 version in very short order.
