Vinous Media 92
"Limpid yellow. Intense, mineral-inflected citrus and orchard fruit scents are complemented by suggestions of quinine and honeydew melon. Juicy and supple on entry, then taut and nervy in the middle, offering refreshingly bitter orange pith and pear skin flavors and a suave floral nuance. Closes stony, precise and impressively long, displaying building spiciness and repeating florality." ~ JM
