91-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
Bright, pale, green-tinged yellow. Very ripe aromas of apple, peach flesh and gingery spices. Rich and sweet but with saline minerality and a lime flavor giving shape to the open-knit flavors. The wine's oak element shows up on the back half, but this rather easygoing grand cru has the fruit to support it. Should give early pleasure. With mostly moderate alcohol content in the 13% to 13.2% range, notes Mangenot, the 2010s generally show better balance than the 2009, with stronger fruit lifted by lively acidity.
