Tasting Notes and Scores

Neal Martin
95

Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. This has a really lovely, beautifully defined bouquet with fresh lemon, grapefruit and dried orange peel. The oak is very well integrated and it develops a smoked meaty tinge with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grapefruit, spice, a touch of lemongrass and pear. It is quite phenolic towards the finish, but certainly very harmonious with hints of Kaffir lime developing with time. Like the Laville Haut-Brion, it just improves with each passing moment. Tasted January 2011.

The palate is very well balanced, a real Burgundy character - Corton-Charlemagne comes to Pessac-Leognan! Real vibrancy, here again that almost sorbet like character – mango, citrus fruits and apricot moving towards a more minerally, chalky finish. Good length. This is a superb wine. Tasted April 2008.
