93-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013
Tasted in components: #1, from Rocoules: Intense mineral and smoke scents, with pear and lemon curd on the palate. Spicy, smoky and pure. #2, from Peleat: Spicier and tighter, with stronger citrus character and a sneaky floral quality. #3, from L'Hermite: Much deeper and more powerful, with a smoky quality on the nose, chewy pear skin and melon flavors and a late note of honey. The ultimate wine should be dense but lively, with an approachable character and very good balance. Chave thinks that it will surprise people with its power "because it won't be heavy, and many people think that an intense wine needs to be rich. It doesn't."
