Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94-96
"A blend of barrels taken by Nicolas Tari. A total of 46 barrels produced. This sample taken before any racking has taken place although there will probably be one in May (instead since the 2004 vintage, the wine rests upon its lees with batonnage dependent upon each barrel.) A more Semillon based Nairac: 95% Semillon, 2.5% Muscadelle and 2.5% Sauvignon Blanc. This has a rich honeyed nose with good delineation, touches of orange blossom and quince paste. The palate is lively with good level of botrytized fruit, a little frizzante with a lively zesty finish. This is a zesty, lively Nairac with more joie-de-vivre than other vintages. This is a great Chateau Nairac marrying purity, puissance, elegance and tension. Long-term potential. Sublime. Drink 2010-2045."
