92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004
(15% alcohol with 3. 5 g/l r. s. ; from vines a bit older than those that went into the Fine Josephine, cropped at barely 10 hectoliters per hectare, according to Cordier) Full yellow color. Superripe aromas of fresh apricot, peach, toast, vanilla and spicy oak. Fat, thick and silky-sweet, with multidimensional flavors of crystallized yellow fruits, honey and vanillin oak; manages to be both exotic and sappy in character. Finishes very long and fresh, with palate-saturating fruit. This would fare very well in a tasting of elite California chardonnays.
