($166; 100% marsanne, grown in the more alluvial soil of Murets; aged in 50% oak-mostly 500-liter demi-muids, of which 50% was new) Medium yellow. Complex aromas of ripe peach, clove, gunflint and smoke; hints at a candied sweetness rare for this vintage. Sweet, dense and fat but bright, with intense, nicely delineated flavors of white peach, apricot and minerals. Finishes strong but a bit youthfully harsh. Needs at least a few years of aging.Author: Stephen Tanzer
