($236) Explosive aromas of roasted nuts and menthol; very Batard. Huge, sweet and opulent; very ripe and expressive but with firm mineral and citric underpinning. Big, rich and built to last, but definitely tastable today. Sound acids extend the youthfully mentholated finish.

Very pale with a mineral-laden nose. Underneath it is big, bold and fat. Amorphous at the moment but all the ingredients are there. Very slightly hot and alcoholic with some astringency still, but the balance of elements is ultimately convincing for the long term. Another very impressive bottling from this increasingly important producer.

Mature, round, complex - no premox luckily since I thought we were rolling the dice on this one. Has many years left
