Lithe and silky, elegant and refined, with subtle white pepper and spicy floral hints weaving through the grapefruit and pineapple flavors. Finishes with deft balance. Impressive for its length. Drink now. 1,012 cases made. -HS
Certainly this wine is fit to be shown alongside - and has a few delicious similarities to - one of Philippe Foreau’s superb reserve cuvees. Less than 48 hours after tasting the 2002 version at the winery, I had the opportunity to buy and taste a bottle of Argyle’s 2001 Brut Extended Tirage at a local restaurant. There is even more of the patisserie-like vanilla, almond paste and frangipane here than in the 2002, along with the same apple, quince, and hint of caramel on a palate at once creamy and (perhaps needless to say!) vivacious. Succulent and sustained, this is a wine to whose blandishments you simply helplessly succumb rather than one of head-scratching intrigue. Enjoy it over the next 12-18 months, I suggest.
