89(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Pale yellow-straw color. Sexy, leesy aromas of pineapple, lime, quince and gravel are lifted by notes of orange and lavender. Tight, dry and quite uncompromising; less flamboyant than the Charles Heintz bottling, showing a strong lemon and lime character some unabsorbed CO2. Finishes with a dusty, saline quality and moderate length. I wanted a bit more fruit. The yield here was an infinitesimal 0.8 tons per acre due to botrytis and rain, according to Ted Lemon.
