89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(55% viognier, 20% roussanne, 10% each of clairette and marsanne, and 5% bourboulenc, all raised in stainless steel):  Light yellow.  Fresh, aromatic scents of peach, yellow plum and lemon curd, lifted by a spicy overtone.  Dry and precise, with sappy pit and citrus fruit flavors that put on weight with air.  Closes with good energy and clarity, leaving spice and lemon notes behind.  This is quite suave for the category and would be a great pairing for lighter seafood dishes.

Incidentally, along with Roussane, up to...
