Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006

($100) Bright, pale yellow. Peach, white plum and menthol on the very ripe nose. Rich, sweet, suave and seamless in the mouth; seems less complex than the Butteaux and Montee de Tonnerre, but this one shows another dimension of texture and volume. There's nearly always a designated "experimental" wine in this cellar; in 2004 it was this Blanchots that was vinified entirely in barriques, some of them new, and then moved into older barrels for aging. Offers a lovely combination of fruits and spices but does not come across as especially oaky. Still, this is certainly the oddball in the cellar this year, with its minerality currently overshadowed by fruit.
