91-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011
Sample taken before fining: Pale straw-yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of ripe peach and honey. Chewy and sweet but restrained on the palate, with excellent density and energy to the zippy stone fruit flavors. Finishes dry and classic, with palate-coating persistence. The same wine after the fining: Restrained, pure aromas of white flowers and clove. Lush, rich and seamless, with harmonious acidity contributing to the wine's smooth impression. More refined than the first sample (no surprise!) but not showing quite as much energy today.
