89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
(done entirely in barriques, one-third new) Pale, bright yellow. Pure, high-pitched aromas of white peach, violet and spicy oak. There's a slight sweetness here (12 g/l r.s.) that's leavened by limey lift and impressive density-not to mention 14.3% alcohol. A juicy, fruit-driven wine with a very smooth finish. Pinot gris for the riesling lover. (In comparison, the 2006 was lower-toned and came off as too dry.)
