Tasting Notes

This is the second year running where the Preuses really distinguishes itself with an incredibly complex nose of brioche, spice, green fruit, shell fish, algae and sea breeze notes that merge into wonderfully elegant yet generous, full, forward and strikingly classy flavors that are dense, balanced and unbelievably persistent plus they display more minerality than usual. The acid spine is firm and ripe but not aggressive and should easily see this through at least a decade of cellar time. I normally have a real weakness for the Valmur at this address but the Preuses is really something in 2005. A "wow" wine.

Score: 94Allen Meadows, (28), October 2007

Lemon peel, anise, menthol and a whiff of spice on the nose. Densely packed and penetrating, with rather austere flavors of crushed stone and lemon. A very elegant grand cru offering lovely ripeness of fruit and a distinctly lacy texture.
