The first of these wines to display noticeable wood spice with wonderfully fresh, amazingly intense, pure, focused green apple fruit followed by
detailed, broad-scaled flavors seemingly fashioned from crystallized rock. This literally stains the palate as the amount of dry extract gives this
a certain chewy quality and the persistence is undeniably of grand cru caliber. Classy, refined and altogether gorgeous with stunning balance
for such a huge and powerful wine. This will clearly require some time in the cellar.
