($260) Fuller yellow color. Reserved, brooding aromas of apple, iodine and menthol; I might have picked this as Le Montrachet. Large-scaled, rich and mouthfilling, with deep flavors of apple, spices and stone. Offers superb volume (the alcohol is nearly 15%) but comes across today as uncompromisingly dry. Quite unevolved, but very long and stony on the aftertaste. This very rich, slow-mounting grand cru should benefit from six to eight years of cellaring. Jean-Marie Guffens has compared this wine from the outset to the outstanding 1992 version. (Fruit of the Vine, New York, NY; also a Peter Vezan selection; importers include The Stacole Company, Boca Raton, FL; North Berkeley Wines, Berkeley, CA; and Ideal Wines, Medford, MA)
