The palate opens slowly, offering an initial citrus character, followed by wood and then, finally, wonderfully rich, but taut fruit.

The palate opens slowly, offering an initial citrus character, followed by wood and then, finally, wonderfully rich, but taut fruit. There is still a toast character here, with apricots and pear on top of the citrus, but it is still only just developing. In 10–15 years, it will be a magnificent wine.

Delivers aromas of dried pineapple lemon and mango yet stays reserved with an underlying minerality almost chalkiness. Full-bodied offering amazing density and richness. Loads of fruit are restrained like a ballerina with... Delivers aromas of dried pineapple lemon and mango yet stays reserved with an underlying minerality almost chalkiness. Full-bodied offering amazing density and richness. Loads of fruit are restrained like a ballerina with perfect form. A tense poised wine that blows your mind with its balance and structure. Wine of the vintage in 2007 in Bordeaux. Best after 2013. -JS

($700) Pale bright yellow. Musky aromas and flavors of pineapple grapefruit crushed rock ginger and mustard seed.

Musky aromas and flavors of pineapple grapefruit crushed rock ginger and mustard seed. Offers an uncanny combination of great density without any impression of weight with the mid-palate displaying complex smoke and spice notes and outstanding lift. Maintains its thickness straight through to the finish where it's virtually impossible to scrape this juice off your palate. This extremely promising young wine needs long aging to knit. 95(+?) points

55% Sauvignon Blanc, 45% Semillon. Rich and sulfidey on the nose – more obvious weight than the Laville. Very glorious and broad with lots of lanolin. Still pretty chewy but there is a big difference between the slimline... 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 45% Semillon. Rich and sulfidey on the nose – more obvious weight than the Laville. Very glorious and broad with lots of lanolin. Still pretty chewy but there is a big difference between the slimline Laville and the much richer Haut-Brion Blanc this year. Really interesting serious wine for the long term. Very long. Lemon oil. Spicy and only just dry. The acidity seems much lower than in the Laville. Big and bold. 18/20

45% new oak barrique. The color is slightly cloudy (un-finished wine-barrel sample drawn that day) light straw color. The nose has perfume of grassy components leads to confection sugar and sweet vanillin and crushed... 45% new oak barrique. The color is slightly cloudy (un-finished wine-barrel sample drawn that day) light straw color. The nose has perfume of grassy components leads to confection sugar and sweet vanillin and crushed flowers and lemon curd. Complex. The palate shows huge concentration and a 45 second finish - medium to full bodied and great acidity. Wow.
