90 Points Antonio Galloni

Pale gold with green-gold highlights, the grenache blanc dominant blend has a somewhat different aromatic profile from the 2010 vintage. A very strong impression of melon, along with Asian pear, pineapple and grapefruit pith, and in the mouth, very rich, sporting a certain modicum of tannin; this bodes exceptionally well for great longevity. The wine’s unique flavors will pair exceptionally well with hard cheeses, seafood (lobster especially), roasted poultry, and savory vegetarian strudels or gratins. Paired with sushi served with freshly grated wasabi will also be a profound revelation.
