Though this wine is in principle a constantly refreshed solera (half is the new vintage and half the previous blend; Billiot among others does the same), and though the goal is to mitigate variations, I find in fact this wine is quite variable, and I like it that way. What’s in the market now is based on ’06, disgorged 7/09. Coming up is an ’07-based wine disgorged 9/09. The ’06 is what I know as the “Peters flavor;” solid, earthy, like gnawing the bark off a tree, and with its typical orange-blossom and saffron aroma hovering close by. The ’07 smells steelier, more reticent; higher tones, almost pepperminty; the palate is lively to the point of brashness. What will it become when it finds its bass notes? We are talking superb aromas: a riot of flowers, lobster and brioche. It’s unusually ripe, dynamic and powerful, and also quite settled-tasting, with a long deep clinging finish. As good as many others’ vintage wines, thanks in part, to a sensible 10 g.l. RS.
