($85) Pale, green-tinged color. Cool, aristocratic, high-pitched aromas of white peach, violet, licorice and minerals. Dense and silky but not at all thick; in fact, there's an uncanny juiciness to the flavors of apricot nectar and citrus fruits. Builds impressively on the back half, finishing chewy and tactile, with considerable power and a strong impression of youthful austerity. This really excites the taste buds, but I'd hold off on drinking it for at least five years.

A now almost invisible touch of wood frames gorgeously pure aromas of white peach, pear, seaweed and a touch of honeysuckle that blends into the rich, full and powerful flavors that seem naturally elegant and refined while maintaining superb focus on the almost painfully intense finish that seems to have no end. A wine of finesse and elegance that makes it an understated vintage for the Dauvissat Preuses.
