Issue: Issue 98
Deep, smoky aromas of iodine, fresh herbs and roasted nuts. A wine of extraordinary solidity and richness; almost too big for the mouth. As ripe as this is (14.2% without chaptalization), it quite dry. Thick but fine and sharply delineated. The extraordinary finish goes on and on.

Like the Leflaive wine, this is made from similarly situated vines also cultivated biodynamically - since 1996 whereas Leflaive converted to biodynamism slightly later. Perhaps because it followed the Leflaive example, the impact of this wine was slightly less dramatic. Initially it was relatively reticent on the nose but it was, infuriatingly, opening up most convincingly as I had to leave. In fact of all the wines, this was the one that changed most in the glass - a good sign. There's something molten and golden about the flavour with an overlay of smoke. Very chunky, savoury and intense. This should be kept a very long time.

Incredible lenght, terrior and a beautiful polished gold sheen. Nose of spice, cotton candy, soft fabric...a real classic.
