A brilliant vintage for this. Honeyed apricots, limestone, baked apple, honeysuckle, so aromatic and ripe but also tense and mineral. Palate is ripe, rich and honeyed but has dazzling purity and freshness and a nougat character to the wine. Mouthwatering and perfectly balanced. Brilliant! As this airs it’s getting much more grip and structure. Really dense and mineral but also honeyed and opulent. Multifaceted. — a month ago
Good but also very awkward. Seems closed. All fruit skins on the palate. Almost a fruit roll up vibe. Good acid and density and super mineral and fresh but structured and closed. Terrific length. Let’s see.
After a few hours the fruit flesh has developed from the fruit skin. The nose has become more honeyed. It’s dense as can be but fresh and energetic. This is as big a Hergott as there was. Almost a 9.5. — 3 months ago
