Incredible aromas of botrytis, including freshly ground nutmeg and dried mushroom powder. Dried fruits. Full body with incredible clarity and balance. Very dense and gorgeous. Very sweet. It goes on for minutes. Really superb. A monument to the vintage. Breathtaking precision. A severe selection was made: 40% of the production was for the grand vin - about 80,000 bottles made. This is 70% sémillon and 30% sauvignon blanc - a little more of the latter than normal. They started harvesting the same day at Cheval Blanc, which is rare. - 98-99 points James Suckling

Lush already, this is loaded with mango, creamed peach and papaya flavors, as well as creamed melon and yellow apple fruit. The finish shows almond and meringue notes, with a bright floral chamomile thread. This has a youthful kick on the finish that should settle in. The purity is undeniable, the length extraordinary. Another classic in the making. -95-98 points Wine Spectator
