    Clean and pure style, with some butter, yogurt, leesy and bread dough aromas, plus plenty of pear and apple notes mixing in nicely. Not a big wine, but satisfying on the supple and caressing finish. Drink now through 2004.

    Ripe aromas of apple blossom, acacia flower, butter and grain. Fat, dense and rich but suave, with lovely vinosity framing and extending the ripe flavors. This has size and dimension for premier cru. Very persistent, pineappley finish. 90 points
