88-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
(done entirely in small barrels, 17% new): Good pale green-yellow color. Candied apple and spicy oak on the nose, brightened by a note of metallic minerality. Supple, lush and sweet, with the candied apple quality joined by a toffee element. This rich, tactile wine has only been racked once so far and may be going through a tired phase. The strong, building back end betrays a hint of bitterness. Comes across as fatter than the Montee de Tonnerre but not as fresh or elegant.
