89(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2004
($21-$26; aged in one-third new oak; only free-run juice was used; from a single parcel of 80-year-old vines that produced barely 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Guffens) Pale yellow color. High-toned aromas of lime, mint and spices; still a bit tight on the nose due to the recent bottling. Then chewy and aromatic in the mouth, with concentrated, nicely delineated lime and mineral flavors. Very tight, even a bit tannic, on the end. More a wine of concentration and elevage than terroir, says Guffens.
