92–94 pts.: Jun 30, 2006

[Barrel tasting] Aromas of honey, dried apple and pear. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a solid core of fruit and honey character. Very impressive. Fresh. Juicy.

Apple pie and lemon tart aromas follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness and a lively, bright finish of citrusy acidity and spiciness. Very young. Powerful. Best after 2012.

[Barrel tasting] A well-balanced, concentrated wine, full of botrytis flavors: richness, poised honey and lemon. This is going to be an impressive wine for a second growth — in about 10 years — but already shows signs of greatness.

Pale yellow-gold color. Peach and apricot aromas carry through onto the dense palate, where they are joined by suave oak and a finishing element of candied citrus peel. Ripe acidity gives the wine a juicy quality in the middle, as well as a firm edge on the finish that calls for some patience.
