International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Pale lemon-yellow color. Deep but extremely reticent nose hints at musky iodine and smoky oak. Much more tightly coiled today than the Chevalier-Montrachet and not at all exotic, hinting at juicy ripe pear and peach fruit and steely minerality. The slowly building finish displays outstanding verve and a strong spine for aging.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2013
