Winemaker's Notes

These wines have greatly gained finesse. It is a rich vintage, with a good freshness of fruit, and supported by fine acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"(just fined) The reticent nose shows a hint of musky, spicy reduction. Spicy, fresh and sharply delineated, with an almost minty quality combining with minerality to give the wine energy and a light touch. Lovely persistent, energetic finish. These vines are now 20 years old and are getting better each year, notes Lafon. 91-92 points "
92 Points

"Soft pain grillé notes add nuance to the pear and acacia blossom aromas that also evidence a hint of fennel that carries over to the fresh, vibrant and notably rich and full-bodied flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration that buffers the firm acid spine that itself gives shape and focus to the mouth coating finish. This beautifully balanced effort is still quite tight and will require a few years in the cellar to fully resolve."
92 Points
