94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2009
($2; 300) Pale gold. Slightly exotic aromas of butterscotch, smoke and honey, all lifted by powerful minerality. Fat, superrich and sweet, with great solidity and fullness to the stone fruit, butterscotch, saline and mineral flavors. Following the red wines here-and the Leroy Corton-Charlemagne I tasted earlier the same morning-this verged on heavy (perhaps the effect of about 10% noble rot), but this big boy has enough energy to maintain freshness as it burns off some of its baby fat over the next decade or so.
