Tasting Note:

“Glorious nose, truffle and musky honey, baked pastry and an extraordinary perfume of fresh vegetable garden and herbs. This is much more like the 1995, dry and rich and powerful. Less complex and precise than the 1995 but similar character. A big vintage. Heat wave few days in August. Doesn't have the electric acidity of the 95. Loaded with flavour and very giving. Ready, and probably the wine you would drink first. Generous, broad, lots of red fruit flavours, lots of pinot flavours, such a vinous character. The more it sits in the glass, the more the complex, aged Pinot flavours come out. “
