Citric, spicy aroma complicated by Riesling-like petrol and nutskin nuances. Silky and sweet in the mouth; less rigorous and more immediately charming than the '96. Honey and resin notes. Quite persistent, and better today than a sample tasted last year just before bottling.
Big and chunky for DC, with plenty of apple, mango and vanilla. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and wood. Needs time to come around. Best after 1999.
This is a solidly made, tightly knit, high strung dry white wine with plenty of sulphur, wood, and acidity. The wine is slowly fleshing out, so it may ultimately deserve a higher rating, but the shrill levels of tart acid and pronounced oakiness give cause for concern. Nevertheless, it is a medium-bodied, reasonably well-made dry white Graves that should age effortlessly for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. Last tasted 3/97.
