95(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011
Bright yellow. Crystallized lemon peel, licorice and stony minerality on the nose. Dense but juicy on entry, then concentrated and brisk in the middle, with penetrating flavors of yellow fruits, minerals and crushed stone. Powerfully built but quite tight today; not as broad as the Batard but boasts terrific verve for the year. A distinctly vertical style of wine that gives an impression of strong sucrosite and firm acidity, almost in the style of a 2008. Wonderfully harmonious wine in the making, but lay it down.
