94-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
Tasted from an ancient barrel: Compelling purity to the aromas of orange blossom, ginger, vanilla and beeswax. Tactile, rich and silky, showing a spectacular sugar/acid balance and penetrating lemon and chalk flavors. A bit less ethereal and more stuffed than the Preuses, with a suave, tactile, extremely long finish that's so palate-staining I found it hard to believe that the wine was not still in my mouth after I spit it. Another sample from a 2008 barrel: Equally pure and precise on the nose, then extremely tight on the palate, with no obvious sign of oak.
