94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(a 65/35 blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc, as Morlet did not like the muscadelle in 2011): Bright yellow. Fascinating, soil-driven aromas of citrus peel, silex, botanical herbs, licorice, minerals, bees wax and juniper, plus a whiff of oyster shell. Rich, tactile and dry, boasting outstanding density of texture with any phenolic roughness. Slightly edgy flavors of citrus zest and salty minerality build inexorably on the long finish, which also features a whiff of gooseberry. This is always among the handful of transcendent semillon/sauvignon blends being made in California today--wonderfully rich and layered wines that can easily hold their own against the dry whites from Bordeaux.
