External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A rich style, this offers vanilla, butterscotch, dried orange peel and apricot aromas and flavors. Balanced, yet on the sweet side, so choose a food pairing accordingly. Has fine concentration and cut. Drink now through 2014.

The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity of good quality leafs that the young vine needs. During ripening, the stripping to improve the exposure of the grapes to the sun and thinning out the grapes in excess must be done with precision in order to obtain a harvest of great quality. orking the ground consists of several heavy duty work.

Pale yellow-gold. Aromatic, muscat-like nose melds honeydew, chlorophyll, mint and flowers. Supple, clean and easygoing, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the stone fruit flavors. This is a bit higher in residual sugar and acidity than the 2004. In a distinctly round style, finishing with lush flavors of peach and spices.
