Nicolas Tari has certainly improved this estate in recent years. His 2009 has a well defined nose with apple-blossom, lime leaf, apricot and orange peel. Opens nicely the longer it remains in the glass. The palate is well balanced, very good weight on the entry with a citric thread of acidity interwoven through the pure honeyed fruit with a hint of ginger on the aftertaste. Nothing extravagant here, but supremely well crafted and succinct.

Nicolas Tari oversaw a sensational 2009 Chateau Nairac. It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of vibrant spicy fruit, interwoven with orange rind and pineapple, leading to a beautifully focused an intense finish. Stack this high in your cellar. Drink 2016-2040+. Tasted March 2014. eRobertParker.com.June, 2014

Full-bodied and sweet, with lots of sliced citrus fruit and spicy bitter almond and honey on the finish. Powerful

Great wine, splendid intense melon and white peach aromas, wonderful refinement of body and texture, nobility evident in the long aftertaste, complex balance between acidity, sugar and saltiness, great future.
