"(multiple bottles opened from personal storage). This highly complex effort has evolved perfectly with a delicate and mature nose that makes one think of the sea shore with background hints of flowers and citrus. The precise and pure medium-bodied flavors are equally delicate and fine while brimming with an intense minerality and beautiful acid/fruit balance. This is crafted in an understated style with simply wonderful transparency and the mouth feel is pure silk. In sum, this is a classic Blanchot that has arrived at its apogee though it should be capable of holding here for years. Note - I was clearly too conservative in my early assessment of this and thus I have upgraded my rating." (Sep 2011)
