($50; for 500 ml.; 130 g/l r.s. with 8.7 grams of acid; aged two years in old French 500-liter casks) Bright gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of mango, apricot and pungent flowers, all lifted by spearmint and wild herbs. Densely packed but light on its feet, with highly complex flavors of white plum, peach and herbes de Provence Does not come off as fat owing to its energy and sappiness. A fascinating wine with a very long and subtle aftertaste. Made from shriveled but not botrytized grapes. Very expressive today but this should go on in bottle for many years.
