Given just how good quality this fruit is (and from a great Semillon vintage), the secret here is just about translating that into the bottle, which this wine does with aplomb. It’s quite a big wine this year, with ripe lemon citrus fruits. Bombastic fruit even, with a big green apple palate starts quite generous and then tends more linear through the finish.
That finish goes on for minutes too, again generous and in a mode that had me thinking of 2005 for its power and penetration.
Score: 18.5/20, 94/100
Would I buy it? Absolutely.
