92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(60% roussanne and 20% each of grenache blanc and "regular" clairette, all grown on sandy soils and raised in older barriques): Vivid gold. Pungent aromas of pear skin, melon and beeswax complicated by subtle smokiness and a strong floral quality. Chewy in texture, with deep orchard and pit fruit flavors braced by zesty citrus pith and mineral notes. A note of licorice comes up with air and carries through the long, sappy, mineral-driven finish. This wine has the depth to age.
