    ($525-$591; the malo finished in August of '06, and the sugar fermentation lingered until the second winter) Reserved but nuanced nose combines menthol, white pepper, minerals, clove, iodine and anise. Hugely rich, tactile and sweet, with a black hole of spicy fruit. This has moderate alcohol of 13.2% but comes across as fully ripe. Less open than the Batard but also finer-grained. Like an essence in the mouth. Perhaps most impressive today on the back end, which features a sappy, chewy texture; building, soil-driven flavors of licorice and spice; and great lift. Wow!

    Like the Bƒtard, this is also very backward and almost painfully primary with the same grudging hints of spice, floral and exotic fruit aromas that merge into fresh, rich and opulent hugely proportioned flavors that possess buckets of dry extract and simply unbelievable length. A 'wow' wine but again, patience required.
