Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90 (2005 Oct.)

This isn't quite as ripe but it's noticeably fresher on the nose with lovely iodine and oyster shell notes with precise, edgy and punchy flavors that offer beautiful texture and terrific finishing minerality. There is fine length here with undeniable breed with the same impressive balance of the Blanchot. An elegant '03.

Vinous - Score: 90+ (2005 Jul.)

More exotic aromas of grapefruit and lime oil. Fat and round in the mouth but distinctly closed today; comes across as less filled in than the Clos, and drier in style. This was a knockout from barrel a year ago, but today I find more texture than terroirBut then this was bottled on the morning of my visit.
