Wine Spectator 92 points - (65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; L1142214113): Pale gold. Scents of yellow plum and pear, plus a hint of honey. Round, supple and open-knit, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors that tighten up slowly with air. Shows good weight and power on the finish, which features a subtle anise quality.
NV LALLIER GRANDE RESERVE GRAND CRU
"A beautifully complex, toasty and overtly yeasty nose complements the equally complex and utterly delicious
flavors that possess obvious concentration as well as excellent length on the satisfying finale. Itís clear that this has some age on it and while it could easily be aged to good effect, itís already sufficiently ready that itís drinking very well now. In sum, this is terrific and well worth considering." Allen Meadows' Burghound.com 93 points
