Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "...wafts from the glass with notions of pears, waxy citrus rind, orange blossom and spicy new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with bright balancing acids and good depth at the core, displaying some promising back-end grip. (WK)" 90-93 points Burghound "A ripe and again penetrating nose is comprised by notes of poached pear and baked apple that are trimmed in background nuances of wood and petrol. The flavors of a classic Blanchots Dessus are typically quite imposing yet here they are racy and elegant if once again not especially dense though they do offer excellent length and focused power.
