This was the wine Dominique teased me I might not have time for in view of the train I had to catch after tasting here. Most amusing. I’m so glad I managed to taste it. Broad and yet very very exciting and nervy – just bursting with wild flowers and life. A great bouquet already plus crystalline precision in terms of structure. So full of life it seems to be running rings round the taster. Truly magnificent, and very long.

Here the incredibly fresh and vibrant yet discreet nose reveals even more aromatic breadth that is brimming with spice, toast, honeysuckle and acacia blossom, all of which introduces broad-shouldered yet tangy full-bodied, notably ripe and utterly classy and sophisticated flavors of striking depth and length. What is perhaps most impressive though is that such a big wine retains such solid delineation that continues on to a palate staining, wonderfully intense finish. In short, this is just flat out brilliant.
