96Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Currently the oldest Cuvée Madame on the market. Picked as early as 4 October. (They are usually still picking a month later than that.) Mild winter, early start in spring, flowering 20 May, even ripening. Hot dry summer. Slightly cooler during picking and a little rain which kick-started botrytis. RS 145 g/l. 100% Sémillon. 100% barrel fermented, 100% new oak, all of it in new French oak for three years. Bottled June 1998. Bright golden tawny – orangey gold. Edge that’s very slightly burnt with barley sugar and then medium weight and pure essence of Sémillon with a strong apricot purée aspect. Great acid and extraordinary persistence. Builds on the finish and just goes on and on. Really lively. Sep 2015, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2008-2050
