There is a hint of mandarin orange to the otherwise more classic aromas of white peach, green apple and wet stone. The well-detailed and intensely stony medium weight plus flavors possess an excellent sense of underlying tension on the saline-infused, dry and well-balanced finish. I like the mid-palate concentration and while this is already delicious, this is sufficiently serious as to require 8 to 10 years of cellar time. BURGHOUND

(from vines harvested between September 6 and 12):  Pale silver-straw color.  Enticing, pure aromas of lemon, white plum, wild herbs and menthol, lifted by a hawthorn topnote.  Pliant, silky and fat but also fresh and precise, with complex, concentrated flavors of lemon, grapefruit pith, spices and powdered stone.  Lovely classic vintage with texture, balance and depth.  Finishes very long, with subtle sweetness and noteworthy clarity.  A repeating note of menthol calls for patience, though.
