Average critic rating : 93.0 points



Criots, because of its amphitheater-like shape that heats up, often is quite exotic. This version is not an exception though in this case it's less than usual as the yellow orchard fruit and dried floral aromas are wonderfully fresh. There is excellent volume to the focused, detailed and powerful medium weight plus flavors that brim with plenty of mouth coating dry extract that imparts a seductive palate impression to the impressively deep and long finish. This is sufficiently firm that it will need the better part of a decade to arrive at its full maturity but it should still be approachable after 5 to 6 years if desired. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013.
