92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
(bottled in January of 2012): Very ripe aromas of orange, vanilla and flowers. Juicy and minerally but backward; denser than the Mont-de-Milieu but less showy today. Tight and gripping grand cru with lovely mineral energy and a note of orange oil giving a tactile quality to the brisk, mounting finish. Built to age: I'd start drinking this in five years. (A retaste of the 2010 Clos Cuvee Authentique, which I rated 91-94 last year and which will not be bottled until late summer, showed aromas of mirabelle and pina colada; a silky, glyceral texture leavened by strong acidity; and a powerful, slightly sweet back end lifted by spicy high tones. On this latest tasting, I rated the wine 91-93.)
