Very ripe and full and flirtatious. Deep-flavoured base of ripe, well-balanced fruit. I had a bit of trouble tasting this en primeur when three different samples tasted very markedly different so I ended up giving it a... Very ripe and full and flirtatious. Deep-flavoured base of ripe, well-balanced fruit. I had a bit of trouble tasting this en primeur when three different samples tasted very markedly different so I ended up giving it a mark of 16.5. Now it’s looking very promising. 18/20

Again that barley sugar note comes through giving it a Barsac harmonious with a little mandarin and some lemon curd. Still a little tight. The palate is balanced with ripe honeyed fruit orange rind and a touch of Seville orange marmalade. Nice taut finish with good acidity the mineralite compensating for a lack of depth. Very fine for the vintage. Tasted February 2011.

Pale yellow. Superripe nose began a bit subdued but hinted at citrus fruits nut meats and honey with aeration. Very rich fat and honeyed but remains light on its feet. Finishes with very good but not outstanding length... Pale yellow. Superripe nose began a bit subdued but hinted at citrus fruits nut meats and honey with aeration. Very rich fat and honeyed but remains light on its feet. Finishes with very good but not outstanding length. Shows honey vanilla and salty traces on the end along with a touch of dryness.
