WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2007
This white is floral and lightly citric with a lacy texture and concentrated flavors of peach honey and orange peel. Zesty acidity keeps it lively through the mouthwatering finish. Delicious. Drink now through2020.-B.S.

Perfumed nose combines lime blossom and powdered stone. Sweet but tangy with a lovely light touch and noteworthy lift to the citrus and floral flavors. The botrytis element here contributes personality. Laurence Faller notes that some blockage of maturity resulted in an element of uneven ripening and has given this wine higher acidity than it would otherwise have. I find this utterly exhilarating. Finishes minerally and very long. This too is from 62-year-old vines on the midslope; the family began separating the richer juice from this parcel with the '98 vintage. This should be spectacular with six to eight years of additional bottle aging.
