A solid showing - did not seem as old as it is; still exhibiting strong structure and acidic spine, but not at all overpowering, as the wine was loaded with mouth watering citrus fruits, i.e., lemon, apple, pear, and a hint of orange. With time, tell-tale pasture and candle wax notes emerged on the nose as well, followed by a long, noble finish. This seemed like the real deal; and while I would suggest no real hurry to drink up, I'm not sure how much better it'll get with additional cellar time. Hold to find out, or drink and enjoy now!
Clear pale yellow colour. Nose fresh citrus, lychee, apple and gooseberry with honey and wax touches. Palate zesty with touches of honey. Fine balance and long finish raises this above the pack. In pristine shape - I note other comments about oxidation : certainly not this bottle !
Magical bottle of wine. Night and day when compared to the other bottle of this wine opened. Literally, fresh as a daisy after 13 years. Honeyed peach, flowers, grass, coconut nose. Lively and concentrated with great fruit and acid balance and complexity. Delicious now with more years to go.
