($175) Multidimensional nose offers baked apple orange oil acacia honey white chocolate toffee and earthy low tones. Expansive superconcentrated and powerful but not aggressive with wonderfully sweet flavors of orange flowers and honey supported by strong underlying structure. An amazingly solid Champagne with the stuffing for extended development in bottle. 94+ points

Still delicious but not quite as impressive as a bottle tasted last year. Rich and full with aromas and flavors of baked apples and citrus and an easygoing finish.
