92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2014

Exotic, very ripe aromas of orange, apricot, lime leaf and yellow flowers, plus a whiff of floral honey (I thought I smelled a bit of noble rot but Picq says there wasn't any).  Large-scaled, round, silky and sweet, with the creamy small-berry concentration that comes from coulure, which cut crop levels in many early-flowering sites on the Rive Droite in 2012.  Picq says this wine finished with less than one gram per liter of residual sugar, despite the full ripeness of the grapes.  I would drink this on the early side for its silkiness and depth of fruit.
