95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
(the yield here was half of a normal crop, according to Billaud; aged 20% in old futs, the rest in stainless steel): Bright pale yellow. White nectarine, tangerine and smoky minerality on the nose. Silky and dense on entry, then precise and penetrating in the middle palate, with terrific verve to the pineapple and crushed rock flavors. Superb fruit intensity here, and almost surprisingly pliant in texture. The very long, rising, mineral-rich finish really titillates the taste buds. An outstanding example of this great grand cru vineyard.
