92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(12.9% alcohol; 8.2 g/l total acidity; 3.14 pH; 4 g/l residual sugar):  Bright, gold-tinged straw-yellow.  Fragrant nose offers aromas of ripe pear, lime, blood orange, Serrano pepper and lemongrass.  Precise and poised, with good texture and balance to the very smooth white fruit, almond and spicy mineral flavors.  Finishes extremely long and structured, with sneaky concentration and lingering white pepper and jasmine notes.  The yields were small in 2002 due to coulure in a difficult, wet vintage, but this wine is a major success.  By the way, this bottle greatly improved with aeration, so you might want to consider decanting it 30 minutes ahead or just take your time and let it develop in the glass.
