92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

(from vines averaging 14 years of age):  Pale, bright yellow.  Orange zest, spices and fresh herbs on the slightly high-toned nose.  Rather suave and juicy in the mouth, with good energy to its rich flavors of white peach, spices and stone.  Not as ripe or Batard-like as the 2012 version, and showing less evidence of oak.  Finishes long and harmonious.  The 2012 may be deeper and more powerful but today I prefer the balance of this wine.
