Winemaker's Notes

97 Burghound

"This is rich and creamy, with plenty of style and sophistication. Ripe fruit flavors of apricot, passion fruit, citrus blossom and mineral course through the refined texture. Unfolds to a long aftertaste of stone fruit and stone. Best from 2012 through 2030. 25 cases imported."
-Wine Spectator

"Compelling nose offers pineapple, fresh almond, marzipan and spices ("smells like grapes under the press," notes Prost). Very rich and sweet but at the same time rock-solid, with the combination of stony minerality and firm acidity contributing to the uncanny tactile quality of this grand cru. Wonderfully velvety and long on the aftertaste, with a rising finish that's positively exhilarating."
-International Wine Cellar 93-96
