    2002 is a very pure, well-focused vintage. The grapes were beautifully ripe and healthy, without a trace of rot. Just how great this vintage is, of course, depends on the terroir.
    However, the wines are showing very well with plenty of fruit, considerable delicacy and beautifully ripe tannin.
    The withe wines are very great, with superb ageing potential, but rather closed-in at present (2007)
