Like finely woven silk this offers beautiful texture sublime balance and integration. Rich apple pastry candied orange peel crystallized honey and dried apricot flavors are layered with hints of smoke sea salt and toasted nut. Lovely with a fresh persistent finish. Drink now through 2028. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -AN

The 1998 Cuvée Enchanteleurs from Henriot is the customary fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir and the wine is excellent. The superb bouquet delivers a deep and still quite youthful mélange of apple, tangerine, warm bread, a lovely base of stony soil tones, gentle nuttiness and an exotic topnote of fresh rosemary. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with elegant mousse, fine mid-palate concentration and lovely balance and grip on the very long and quite poised finish. A beautiful wine that started out life quite tightlyknit, but is now starting to really blossom and drinking with great style. 2013-2035. 94+

By Josh RaynoldsStephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Nov/Oct 11(a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir all from grand cru vineyards; L1112320111): Light bright gold. Poached pear flowers honey and toasty lees on the smoky spice-accented nose. Broad and juicy offering open-knit orchard and pit fruit flavors braced by tangy acidity. Smooth sappy and smoky on the finish which shows excellent clarity and closing bite. Tighter than the outstanding 1996 version and missing just a bit of that wine's heft.
