(barrel fermented in large French oak and then aged in the casks for a further seven months): Pale gold. High-pitched aromas of candied orange, honeysuckle, minerals and candied ginger, along with an exotic note of curry powder.

(I actually purchased three cases of the 2010, and I'm down to my last five or six bottles after regularly drinking this wine over the last few months.) Just hitting the market, the 2011 is a more restrained, mineral-dominated wine with hints of crushed rock, white c...

Just hitting the market, the 2011 is a more restrained, mineral-dominated wine with hints of crushed rock, white citrus, apple blossoms and caramelized lemons and limes. It is more medium-bodied in 2011 and not quite as full as the 2010, but because of that, many people might like it even more, thanks to the beautifully fruited and natural feel to this wine. - Robert Parker 90 Points
