"($430) Bright, green-tinged yellow. Lime, powdered stone and mint on the nose, along with a buttery nuance. Dense, saline, sappy and intensely flavored; offers very good cut for a wine with such breadth and richness. The white peach and lime tea flavors are complemented by a hint of exotic fruits. Much more powerful and chewy than the Bienvenue (this is 13.5% alcohol), not to mention more structured. Finishes with a whiplash of mirabelle, honey and jasmine." (IWC)

"An expressive and actually quite elegant nose of lemon rind, spiced pear, white peach and plenty of dried floral influences. The supple, round and imposingly scaled big-bodied flavors are impressively concentrated and while quite powerful, they are also quite seductively textured before culminating in an explosive yet impeccably well-balanced finish. This is potentially a knockout." (BH)
