94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012

Bright yellow.  Deep aromas of pineapple, exotic herbs, clove oil and smoky oak, complicated by a leesy element.  Large-scaled, glyceral and broad; less precise today than the Bienvenue but that's due to this wine's major baby fat.  Very ripe peach and apricot flavors are lifted by lemon oil and chewy saline minerality.  Finishes very long, with a light dusting of tongue-coating tannins.  This wine held up well for days in the recorked bottle.  I would not be surprised to see it merit an even higher score with seven or eight years in the cellar.
