A pale golden hue. A lovely minerally nose of almonds and custard creams. Very soft, plush and perfumed. Touch of chalk dust. The palate is unctuous with a lot of botrytis. Again, that custard creme note comes through mixed with peach, creme fraiche. Not quite as rich as the 1995 but the end is endless. Perhaps not as long-term as other vintages, but certainly a wine that is going to offer a lot of pleasure over the next quarter century. Tasted March 2004. Neal Martin,
Lift and richness and electrified raisins! There's a lot of energy here. Medicine? Sinewy. Not the sweetest. Jancis Robinson,
Space limitations preclude including tasting notes. Wine Advocate.April, 2005
Cooked apple, with hints of honey, lemon and butter. Turns to dried apricots. Full and round, very sweet, with a candied character. Good enough, but a little cloying on the palate. I have had this many times: not what it should be. Lots of bottle variation. Drink now. James Suckling,
