Pal straw-bronze; everything about the wine is a higher profile; complexity, length, intensity, acidity; given its 8+ years on lees, it is with zero or very low dosage; needs time on cork to fulfil all its promise.

Review
A magnificent contrast of all the wonder of long lees age and the tension of malic acidity, this is a cuvée bursting with grand complexity of dried nectarine, nutmeg, ginger nut biscuits, honey, roast almonds, even tertiary hints of pipe smoke, then pulling dramatically and refreshingly into a taut finish of glittering malic acidity that lingers long and bright. Dosage is intricately integrated. It has the depth and complexity to handle a touch of phenolic bitterness on the finish.
