IWC 92
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, January 2015

Mineral-tinged peach, melon and pear aromas display excellent clarity, picking up a subtle floral quality with aeration. Supple and seamless on the palate, offering vivid honeydew and pit fruit flavors accented by a vibrant lemon zest quality. Finishes very long, silky and precise, with an echo of juicy melon and strong mineral lift. -- Josh Raynolds

The nose here is super chalky, showing dried white flowers, sweetly fragrant yeast elements, lemon rind and a little pepper - very pure. The palate has a refined core of quite dry lemon citrus flavor; crunchy, crisp and even, pure and uncluttered. Drink now. - Nick Stock

Like the dosage, the nose is notably restrained as well with its soft aromas of green apple, brioche, yeast and lemon zest. There is good verve to the delicious flavors where the underlying effervescence is really quite fine, all wrapped in a cool, pure, linear and markedly dry finale. This understated effort is an exercise in refinement and will likely best please those who enjoy more delicate examples. now+

As mineral and lime-infused as a Chablis this vinous Champagne is creamy rich and toasty with plenty of acidity to keep it focused. There's an earthiness to the fruit edging on root vegetables. Serve it with toasted almonds.

A subtle version, more impressive today for showing fine balance and texture, as well as chalk-tinged, minerally drive to the hints of creamed apple, lemon parfait, orchard blossom and slivered almond. Very pretty. Drink...
