94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

($80) Medium green-yellow. The complex and captivating nose opens to show peach, greengage plum, incense and orange blossom honey. The mouth is no less impressive, with full-bodied, sweetly extracted stone fruit, smoky flint and orange zest flavors given shape and energy by a firm spine of harmonious acidity. The finish is finely chiseled, coating the palate with citrus, apricot and flint flavors. This truly captivating wine already offers tremendous pleasure, but will benefit from extended bottle maturation. Drink now to 2023.
