A new cuvée and an assemblage of reserve wines from 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010 laid down in vats for three years, in bottle for another three, followed by a year's rest after disgorging. The freshness belies its age on the nose. This is still bursting with lemon citrus and peach stone fruits, pastry and gently spicy nuances. The palate has a mellow texture (lower pressure bottling at 4.5 atmospheres) and a seamless integration of glossy citrus and stone fruit flavors with biscuity, spicy and nutty complexity. Sweetness of time is all that's required as the dosage is a low 3g/l.
An elegant, mineral-driven version, with the delicate bead carrying subtle flavors of black currant, mandarin orange peel, smoke and ground ginger, well-meshed to the firm, focusing frame of acidity. Offers a lithe, lingering finish. Disgorged June 2016. Drink now through 2020. (AN)
Pungent and explosive on the nose. Very pure and focused, this actually smells more youthful than the Yellow Label based on the 2013 vintage. Tight and very zesty with the most impressive texture. Despite the high refreshment factor, there is nothing painful about this. The acidity is extremely well integrated. Super fresh. Well balanced and impressive. 17/20 points (JR)
