Vibrant, pure aromas of lemon, peach, orange peel, toast and rose petal. Big and mouthfilling, but quite dry and youthfully unevolved; a very serious Champagne that not yet filled in on the middle palate. Extremely unevolved. Shows the edgy acidity of the year. Finishes with almost painful intensity. A strong showing for a wine that is not ready to drink.

It took twenty years for this wine to start approaching maturity. Now its slender-limbed creaminess has been replaced by great nuttiness and broad, straw-like, mature apple fruitiness. The wine's length and purity are its foremost assets on its continued journey into the future.

A laser beam. Beautifully focused, intense and densely flavored with lime, honey and chanterelles in butter. So rich it's almost too much, but the vibrant acidity keeps everything in check and driving through the long finish. 700 cases imported.

Good foam, good acid, fresh not harsh but a hint of Sherry. Still fresh but the Sherry makes one wonder. 2 bottles with Sherry aftertaste not the third one. Bottlevariation?
