ON THE NOSE
Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.
ON THE PALATE
The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist.
A warm, ripe vintage with fruit at full-throttle. Exotically toned, without suffering too much from the autolytic fatness that is prevalent in some releases from this vintage. Absolutely no hint of greenness, a charming, sunshine wine that is drinking well already. Quite serious for an ’09, and while the score is partly based on potential, even now it a solid 93/100. Drink 2019-2034.
