Tasting Notes

Brilliant, intense, rich and unctuous, this combines undoubted class with a little flamboyance too. Notes of peach, nectarine and sherbet with enough acidity to counter the sweetness, overlaying a deep, layered core and a mineral streak on the finish.

Reviews & Scores

Decanter: Wonderful ultra-rich and caramelised aromas and texture, almost reminiscent here of the 2003 style, noble, very long, sugar being balanced by a nice and fruity acidity, impressive, as usual. 18
