    Winemaker's Notes:

    An outstanding wine. Pale yellow color. Complex floral nose of white lilac and white rose. Once open, fruity aromas come to the fore, evolving towards grilled hazelnut and almond. When the wine is more mature, the nose is surprisingly strong and fifteen minutes of aeration produce wonderful notes of white truffle, citron, honey and nutmeg, elegantly meshed together. Very lively on the palate. Its rich texture is in evidence, but also its structure and minerality. It is round, but never heavy. Harmonious fullness in the aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale, bright lemon-yellow. Backward nose hints at pineapple and smoky reduction. Much less harmonious today--and less vibrant--than the 2010 version, with a distinctly oily texture to the pineapple flavor. Hard to taste right now owing to the CO2 and the wine's edgy acidity.
    Range: 89-92
