87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2005
($29; bottled on the morning I tasted it and probably out of form as a result) Nose dominated by oak and menthol; not currently showing its fruit. Fat, honeyed and rich, but with more flavor precision and underlying structure than the Crozes. The finish shows a strong roasted nut aspect today. The Guigals did a sterile filtration for this high-pH wine rather than bottle it with a lot of sulfur.
