This remarkable wine finishes with over 70 g/L of residual sugar yet finishes almost dry and has such powerful terroir character that drives the wine from start of aromas which hold some smoky fruit notes together with a clear signature of the schist terroir through to the very long finish. 13.3 % Alc/Vol; 71 g/L RS; 5.2 g/L TA. ‘Right now this is still shy on the nose. There is a glint of pear peel and Mirabelle, plus a suggestion of smoke. The palate is equally shy as the principal sensation is that of wonderfully tangy texture, fresh concentrated acidity and balanced sweetness right now. This needs time to develop its undoubtedly rich flavors. The balance is impeccable. Immense power and lasting strength lie at the core of this monumental wine. This is made to last and should be given time in the cellar. Drink 2025–2050.’ 96 points, Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast, December 2017.
