Tasting Note:

The 'other' property of the Comte de Lur-Saluces (of Yquem), offered here en primeur for the first time. A small vineyard which produces a tiny amount of wine - this year only 1,800 cases. Standards and quality are extremely high, and the wine's power and intensity mimic those of Yquem. This wine will age effortlessly for 20 years, and will require at least 10 years cellaring to show its full greatness. Astoundingly rich and intense, yet fine and fresh, this is a very reasonable price for such an excellent wine.
