Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 96+ points

The last wine I tasted chez Ganevat (before leaving for a bite to eat and a couple of crazy bottles or six!), the unexpected 2005 La Cuvée du Pépé, a Chardonnay on steroids, was aged under a veil of yeasts à la Vin Jaune but with the clout of Chardonnay and the intensity of a year like 2005, which had enough power to undergo an extended élevage of 13 years under a veil of yeasts! This is a concentrated version of the previously released 2008, but it has a much stronger goût de Jaune and is musky, spicy, dense and concentrated, incredibly pungent on the palate, taking your tastebuds for spin along a spice bazaar. Super powerful stuff!
