Bright amber-gold. Dried apricot, orange marmalade, aromatic herbs and a hint of mirabelle eau de vie on the nose; there’s just a hint of oxidation. Densely packed, saline and thick, but without any impression of heaviness. Fresh herbal and saline flavors are lifted by noteworthy acidity. The long, suave finish shows a youthful character that hints at this wine’s great longevity. Experience tells me this wine will age and improve magnificently over another 10 years or so. Another bottle I opened was less interesting. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, March 2018)
