87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2014
From calcaire-rich soil: Aromas of yellow fruits, orange zest and white pepper, plus a smoky whiff of silex. Fat, supple and sweet but with a strong citrus zest character giving the middle palate good lift. From soil richer in clay: Full yellow. Orange zest, stone fruit nectar and a whiff of butter on the sexy nose (the grapes were pinker here, said Picq). Rich, broad and spicy but ultimately less sweet than the first example in spite of its more glyceral texture. From a third tank: Green-tinged pale yellow. Lovely floral lift to the aromas of white peach and nectarine. Concentrated and fine-grained, with a tactile quality and strong iodiney salinity. This, too, boasts plenty of early sex appeal. The blend should offer early pleasure.
