Vinous 92 (fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and then aged in bottle for 50 months before release) Pale gold. Expansive aromas of poached pear, melon, tangerine, toasty lees and minerals carry a suave floral overtone and a touch of iodine. Deep-pitched, oak-spiced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show superb energy and focus, picking up hints of buttered toast and anise on the back half. Offers a compelling blend of power and finesse and finishes sappy, gently sweet and very long, leaving sexy vanilla and honeysuckle notes behind.
