(from Fairendes). Here the nose is similar to that of the Morgeot if perhaps just a touch more elegant. Consistent with the impression given by the nose there is a bit more refinement to the rich, generous and borderline opulent medium-bodied flavors that manage to retain good cut and vibrancy on the balanced and focused finale. Lovely stuff that should be approachable young but also reward 6 to 8 years of cellaring. 92/2023+
