I will start by say this is my favorite wine. Having 5 different vintages including the stellar 1990 This is no exception. 98+pts on this beautiful wine. Fragrant nose of fruits with some Brie cheese. Deep rich black fruit gives way to black pepper and earthy tones(mushrooms and some olive). Still with medium acidity and long finish. Close to perfection in a bottle — 3 days ago
Medium gold color, heavy like motor oil in a glass. Killer, exotic nose. Notes of citrus, sweet lemon, cardamom, tan spice, some cinnamon and some iodine. Rich and palate-staining in the mouth. So much power. Finish goes on forever. This was better earlier in the evening, and for me declined a bit as it got more air… different from the other two 86s tonight which instead powered up with more oxygen. My last bottle of this as well. Killer juice! (Bday 5 of 12) — a day ago
This will probably be upgraded to a 9.5 with some bottle age. Incredibly youthful yet extraordinarily complex. White blossoms, honey suckle, stone fruit dance with citrus and lemon zest. The palate is beautifully balanced and while it has the classic oil viscosity the wines acidity does a fantastic job of cleansing your palate. I look forward to pulling the cork on another bottle in 4-5 years! — 3 days ago
Nose is honey made from apricot flowers. Stunning. So floral. Amazing. Really gods apricot flower perfume with like this aeration of honey.
Palate is apricot Nectar. Gorgeous silky texture. So well balanced.
Wow. This is like condrieu. I’d like condrieu didn’t fucking suck and wasn’t Oaked up the ass.
