(bottled in September of 2012): Pale yellow. Musky aromas of yellow fruits, mango, honey and earth; a bit blurry with alcohol. Full in the mouth but slightly bitter-edged and aggressive, showing a strong licorice flavor that lingers through to the rather dry finish. Lacks real nerve and class for premier cru. Billaud started harvesting on the late side in 2011, on September 10, and he picked these 1990 vines near the end. Not my style.
