Allen Meadows - Score: 95-98 (2019 Jun.)

As good as the Perrières is, and it's exceptionally good, this offers another step up with its deft touch of wood framing the highly restrained but even more complex nose of mildly exotic aromas of passion fruit, apple, lemon-lime, pear, white flowers and discreet spice elements. The sleek, focused and almost painfully intense imposingly-scaled flavors brim with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the very firm acid spine shaping the hugely long finish that evidences focused power and plenty of minerality. This is a dramatic wine that is going to require all of 15 years to arrive at its peak and 20 would not surprise me much.
