Taut and mineral, this is currently a wine that is waiting to reveal its power and majesty. The fruit is on a tight rein of acidity, which only slowly opens up to show mango, pineapple, crisp citrus, layers of toast and a mouth-enveloping richness. Age for at least five years, preferably 10.

Discreet aromas of minerals and menthol with a suggestion of toast. Much less sweet and full in the mouth than the Batard; in fact this youthfully closed wine shows a considerably cooler aspect and is characterized by citrus and rocky flavors. In the context of this cellar-or most others in '06 for that matter-this is like tasting a wine from another vintage.

Oak still in evidence. Manages to be both dry and rich. Dense. Lively. Reverberant. 18/20

Best from 2012... Ripe and almost opulent with lemon pastry apricot and spice elements that are broad on the attack. Though open now there's a vibrant structure and a long finish.
