($60; 14. 8% alcohol; from a crop level of just 12 hectoliters per hectare, according to Cordier) Deep, full yellow. Superripe aromas of pineapple, peach, brown butter, honey, smoke and game; distinct hints of surmaturite Then very rich but surprisingly dry, with a chewy texture and terrific concentration. Has the dense flesh to support its firm spine of acidity. Long, slow-building finish throws off notes of vanilla and coconut. Cordier advises holding this wine for three or four years, to give the secondary aromas a chance to develop.
