93 points "Rating Details 93 BH Note: 100% from vines in Aloxe and all domaine fruit Tasting note: A discreet touch of wood sets off aromas of dried rose petal, lemon grass and green apple that precede rich, full and obviously well-muscled big-bodied flavors that possess an intense minerality on the powerful, driving and palate staining finish that delivers simply terrific persistence. This imposing effort is most impressive and should offer up to a decade of potential improvement. Tasted: Feb 01, 2011 Score: 93 Drink: 2017+ Issue 43 --Allen Meadows' Burghound.com" Best 2017-2022

94 points "Powerful, concentrated and intense, this wine rolls around the mouth in its rich opulence. The ripest of sweet apricot and pear fruits join buttery toast just laced with acidity. (9/ 2011)" Best 2015-2020

93 points "Candied apple and lemon flavors are highlighted by butter and grilled almond notes in this opulent white. Concentrated and creamy, with a hint of seashore that adds another dimension. The saturated finish echoes the butter and nut themes. Best from 2013 through 2025. 4,174 cases made. –BS (4/ 2012)" Best 2013-2025
