I love this vintage in the Mosel. Classic yet overlooked for the more slutty 05’s and 03’s. Nose has some aged character but starts off restrained with some lemon, slate and hints of mushroom. Some honey and along with a foie gras savoriness as well. What a palate. Honeyed, rich, savory and elegant with terrific freshness. Opens up on the nose with green tea and some lavender. Really rich and decadent with a icing on the cake like texture. So pure, deep and sweet with such a dramatic palate presence. Awesome.
