Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 95 (2016 Jun.)

Here the nose is all but mute and only reluctantly offers up gorgeously complex notes of mineral reduction, green apple, lilac, honeysuckle, spice and discreet citrus nuances. There is a real sense of underlying tension to the ultra-pure; indeed the word crystalline come to mind, middle weight flavors that exhibit a driving minerality on the explosively persistent and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is a classically styled Perrières that's going to live for a very long time so patience absolutely required. In a word, brilliant.

Vinous - Score: 94+ (2015 Sep.)

Pale, bright lemon-yellow. Flamboyant orange zest and stone aromas come across as a bit more exotic than those of the Genevrières. On the palate, the wine's creamy soft citrus fruit is energized by powerful sappy minerality. There's great stuffing here but this very long, palate-staining wine will need time in bottle.
