Bright gold. Talc, orange zest, pear and white flowers on the nose, along with a touch of pungent herbs. Tangy, finely wrought citrus flavors are given depth and texture by notes of floral honey and bitter pear skin, with a hint of tarragon emerging on the back of the palate. Slow to unfold, but finishes with excellent clarity, lift and persistence. Like 2009 and 2005, 2002 is one of the great vintages here—a year when it was possible to produce all styles at a high level of quality. (JP)
The lush almond, cream and spice aromas lure you in, then the rich, off-dry quince, persimmon, fig and white peach flavors knock you out. The best part? The ripe, tangy acidity wakes you up for an echo of orange peel and clove while keeping it all crystalline in texture. (JM)
