Critical Acclaim

"Normally lush and opulent, this version is sleek and racy, with clean, focused aromas of acacia, peach, citronella and subtle pineapple. Very pure and vibrant, this ends with a long, mouthwatering finish of spice and mineral.—Non-blind 2010 DRC tasting (March 2013). Best from 2016 through 2030."
97 Points

"Pale greenish-yellow. Musky, iodiney aromas of pineapple, resin, honey and spicy oak. An intensely mineral wine with almost painful cut to its tactile flavors of menthol, honey, spice oils and peppermint. This extremely dense wine conveys a strong impression of dry extract but is more about saline minerality and soil tones than primary fruits. Finishes with intriguing mentholated lift. This brilliant rendition of terroir will need a good 10 to 15 years of bottling aging. De Villaine believes this wine is not as rich as usual but is very fresh. I find it plenty dense but a bit youthfully disjointed, less honeyed than in some recent vintages but with great class and longer-term potential. 95+ points "
