Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 20 JR.
"Yield of 12 hl/ha . . . . Quite deep gold. Wonderfully deep nose – never smelt anything as intense and glorious as this! Extraordinary!!! Deep yet lively. Exciting depth of pear juice and zest – tangerine peel too. Great astringency. 2001 was more concentrated. This is more transparent. Lovely dancing stuff, but already in the super-nuanced Yquem idiom. Lighter than some vintages but with great lacy complexity. Wonderful green, lively notes and some real explosiveness – 13.5 per cent. Energy drink! Coiled like a taut spring." Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 23 Apr 2006 (Tasted 20 Apr 2006)
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,250
