Critic Notes

This is the first wine to display noticeable SO2 and it's enough to dominate the nose at present. There is impressive richness to the broad-shouldered yet refined and elegant medium-bodied flavors that brim with plenty of palate coating dry extract. Despite the succulence of the mid-palate there is excellent delineation on the citrus-infused, intense and moderately dry finish. Like the Caillerets this is not quite as complex as I believe that it will be with time in bottle so it would be best to allow this at least 5 years of bottle age first. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2018+

Score: 92-/100Allen Meadows, Burghound

Maurice bought two barrels in 1943 and ...
