Intensely botrytised, with loads of allspice and mineral character, yet lively and exciting. Full-bodied, racy and very long. Fresh sweetness. (Web-2002)
Pale gold. Exotic aromas of ripe apricot and sultana raisin, with liqueur-like and candied notes. Very sweet, concentrated and powerful. Extremely young, chewy and dense, with sugar, acidity and alcohol balanced at a high level. Note of licorice. Shows excellent delineation and structure from the outset, as well as terrific length.
The 2001 Nairac was still in barrel when I tasted it several months ago. An evolved style, with a moderate amber color as well as good acidity, it is powerful and rich although somewhat disjointed. Notes of creme brulee, honeyed pineapple, sweet peaches and other tropical fruits emerge from this big 2001. Not yet revealing all of its charm, it requires 4-6 years of cellaring, and should age for 15+ years. (RP)
