“Perfect” 20/20 Points
“Quite deep gold. Wonderfully deep nose – never smelt anything as intense and glorious as this! Extraordinary!!! Deep yet lively. Exciting depth of pear juice and zest – tangerine peel too. Great astringency. Transparent. Lovely dancing stuff, but already in the super-nuanced Yquem idiom. Great lacy complexity. Wonderful green, lively notes and some real explosiveness. Energy drink! Coiled like a taut spring.” - Jancis Robinson MW (4/06)

“A deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and Jonagold apple flavors all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and dried citrus notes. Best from 2015 through 2045.” - Wine Spectator (12/12)
