92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(13.8% alcohol; 7.5 g/l total acidity; 3.09 pH; 3 g/l residual sugar):  Pale straw-green.  Delicate notes of cinnamon, sage and lemongrass on the enticing nose.  Rich, dense and structured, with spicy white fruit, quince, fresh herbs and minty nuances on the structured palate.  Finishes fresh and long, with a surprising amount of flesh, not surprising perhaps in a vintage that yielded some very heavy wines at other famous estates.  Unlike many other wines made in this hot, dry growing season with a late harvest and little or no botrytis), this Frédéric Emile struck me as excellent and rather fresh.
