About

89-92

There is just enough reduction to mask the underlying fruit at present. By contrast there is good freshness and verve to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess reasonable if not impressive density, all wrapped in a bitter lemon-suffused finish.

89-91 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

Good palish yellow. Reticent aromas of citrus fruit and menthol. Less complex, sweet and broad than the Chenevottes but more minerally, with its citrus flavors complicated by flowers and a medicinal menthol note. Quite closed in the early going but finishes firm and persistent. This wine is a 50/50 blend of vines planted in 1952 and 1988. (12.9% alcohol)
