87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012
Pale straw-yellow. Aromas of menthol, wet stone, flowers and botanical herbs. Shows enticing citric and spearmint cut but comes across as a bit hard on the back end today owing to the recent sulfuring. Etienne de Montille described 2011 as a very good year in which the big crop sometimes resulted in a lack of density in the wines. But if they're not too generous, the wines are very "digestif," he added, "like German wines. My sister [Alix de Montille, who makes these wines] always looks for calcaire; she loves German riesling."
