93-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2012

(made from three kinds of grapes, said Hervet:  "yellow like Meursault, classic Puligny-type fruit, and green/yellow grapes with a touch of noble rot, like Montrachet"):  Soil-driven aromas of apple, mint, anise and menthol, with complicating notes of fresh herbs and white pepper.  Dense, saline and seamless; at once very dry and chewy.  Conveys a rare impression of glyceral texture without much alcohol (this was actually 12.5% potential alcohol chaptalized to 12.8%).  Wonderfully perfumed on the bracing finish, with is dusty with extract.  Not at all a fruity style of white Burgundy.  But this should make for an utterly compelling wine.
