92? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012
Bright, pale yellow. Reticent but very pure aromas of yellow peach, hazelnut and vanillin oak; comes across as riper than the utterly primary basic Corton-Charlemagne. Sweet and fine-grained, with a distinctly silky texture to the yellow fruit flavors. I find this less limey and minerally than the basic bottling, without quite that wine's tension. In fact, the finish shows a slightly exotic apricot quality and a bit of youthful warmth.
