STEPHEN TANZER
Reticent nose hints at menthol and spices. Then wonderfully flavorful and gripping in the mouth, with a sweet orange marmalade flavor framed by lively acidity. At once superripe and precise, and fresh and very long on the aftertaste. This was picked at the beginning of the harvest, with potential alcohol of 13.8%. Boasts superb intensity and density of material.

BURGHOUND
An intensely floral nose is nuanced with hints of spice and citrus where the latter can also be found on the textured and borderline massive flavors but like the Criots, there is absolutely no sense of heaviness on the exceptionally rich finish that drenches and stains the palate. This is one big wine yet there is a firm acid backbone that keeps everything in ideal balance and overall, it's one extremely impressive effort.
