Heavy, straw gold. Great nose with floral and fruit notes. Plus stone pebbles, some spice and a hint of honey. Rich and powerful in the mouth. This has improved since my last bottle a few years ago and bottles like this can get better with more slumber time.

Back up bottle pulled because of the corked 05 Clos. Lighter color, straw gold. Side by side it makes the taint in the Clos more obvious. Notes of white flowers, quince, honeydew melon, stones, white clay and a tiny bit of honey. With adequate air this expands and gets huge. Both bottles have that sort of welcome dirtiness I find in both Dauvissat and Niellon. More subdued than the flamboyant Clos, and needs more age to reach its potential. Yet this is really good right now.
