Vinous 88 points - (12.7% potential alcohol chaptalized to 13.5%): Pale, bright yellow. Smoky aromas of lemon and nuts lifted by a peppery nuance. Supple and moderately sweet, showing decent intensity and inner-mouth lift to the flavors of lime and minerals. The slightly grilled quality carries through on the palate. Finishes moderately ripe, with a touch of dryness.
