An opulent ripe and moderately oaked in-your-face nose explodes from the glass bringing incredibly complex and layered aromas that run from floral citrus spice and a full range of white and yellow fruit notes that complement to perfection the lush rich and amazingly concentrated broad-scaled flavors that are underpinned by an intense minerality and a palate staining finish of simply unbelievable length. At this young stage this is a massive Montrachet that is long on power and muscle and while it's not as elegant as say the 2000 2002 or 2004 versions I believe that the refinement one typically finds in this wine will come in time. In sum for sheer vinous fireworks this is hard to beat and to call it a "wow" wine would be a considerable understatement. However note that plenty of time will be required and it will be one of the longest-lived vintages in recent memory. A great great effort.
