($158) Medium straw. Captivating aromas of beeswax, smoked meat, truffle, poached pear and ripe fig. Broad and fleshy on the palate, with a deep, smoky quality along with apple pie, lavender and subtle brown sugar flavors. As ripe and round as this may be, it's also precise and focused. Finishes with very good concentration. Should reward cellaring.

Already seductively creamy and deep, with delightful notes from Aÿ that with time will become more gamy and sexy. Long, creamy, uniform taste. The wine benefits from airing and the last glass is—at the moment—much better than the first. During the autumn of 2003, the fruit of this high-class Pinot Noir began to make itself known, like a rumbling thunderstorm in the distance.

Out of magnum. Nice sweet texture, good fruit, very smooth.
