Light golden. Gorgeous combination of quince and lively citrus. Moderately sweet, pristine, almost crystalline quality of the fruit with even more orange on the palate than the nose. The usual fantastic texture and exceptional acidic backbone but perhaps a little less of the Clos du Bourg soil component than in many bottles of this. Last bottle of this and perhaps the best of the lot-on to the '05!
No pre-mox with this bottle. Wonderful wine that expanded and improved over two hours. Detailed and articulate in its expression, lush but controlled, full in body but also elegant. Wool, thyme, honey, spring water, rock. Lovely, lovely wine.
Deep yellow. Very fresh aromatics of pear, honey, and spice. Lush with zingy acidity, layered feel, pure fruit with less soil than usual for this site. Marvelous bottle. I'm getting to the bottom of the pile; over the past few years, each time I've opened one dreading oxidation, it has performed brilliantly.
