International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue Online Only

Full yellow-gold color. Flamboyant aromas of apricot, five-spice powder, flowers and smoky oak. Glyceral, fat and exotic, with mirabelle, honeyed apricot and spice flavors of great richness. There's something here that reminds me of plum wine. Seems to gain in fat and glyceral texture as it opens in the glass, with an emerging saline element contributing to the impression of chewiness. Finishes wonderfully thick, spicy and long, with compelling sweetness. This should evolve slowly over a period of decades.

Jancis Robinson Author: Julia Harding MW

TA 3 g/l (sulphuric), RS 168 g/l.Highly spiced but also a little floral. Intense bitter orange, highly concentrated, very rich and thick and mouth-filling and less fresh than some vintages but still balanced in a richer, more rounded and powerful style. Needs more age to add complexity and balance that richness.  (JH)
