Very open and welcoming Cristal. Light Apple and pear notes, balanced but surprisingly open and approachable. Not the complexity of the greatest of years and I worry about there being enouh balancing acidity to make this a long term keeper. Certainly drink this before the 02 and 06, but faint praise to say this really and I feel that greater selection would have resulted in a much better wine.
