Deep, golden-yellow hue, with a very mature, complex, toasty-mellow bouquet. Traces of nougat, toffee and peanut brittle. Some popcorn, too. The wine is rich and mouth-filling, packed with flavour and richness, a trace of phenolic grip which is totally in harmony with the big presence of the wine. It lingers very long on the finish. Very impressive! It packs the kind of power seldom seen outside of very high-end Champagne. Very impressive. (Disgorged March 2021, after 14 years on lees)
97 points, The Real Review (July 2021)
Effortlessly complex and energetic, this is multi-faceted and revealing some age, with mushroom, beeswax and baked pastry tones allied with white chocolate, candied lemon peel and fresh apples. Incredibly long, rich and just lovely.
