This spectacular dry white Graves is a likely candidate to rival the 1989 produced at Haut-Brion. The harvest began at the end of August. The wine possesses the texture of a great Burgundy grand cru given its thick unctuosity. The superb nose of honeyed fruits and smoky oak is far more developed and ostentatious than its sister, the more subtle and backward Laville-Haut-Brion. It is awesomely rich, with a chewy texture and great purity and definition. This is a ravishingly intense, full-bodied, dry white wine that should age well for 30+ years. (RP) (Bordeaux Book, 1998)
Youthful, bright and surprisingly elegant for such a young wine. Round and spicy, with hints of honey and acacia, long and harmonious already. Perhaps best from 2005.
