Not as much eucalyptus as the Heitz MV but it was surprisingly still there. Not my favorite HSS

Rated 5 different times by Parker🙄, 97 points at one time but last rating was 92 points.
And I actually think thats about right, 92-94.
Age doesn’t Always help

Not much nose to it on pop & pour, give it some time in the decanter, it will pop!
Probably one of lowest scored HSS by professional reviewers,
Parker 92, but some time in the bottle has helped
Big difference between this and the 05 & 07, those were great! But even those needed a 4 hour decant
