RATINGS

92Vinous / IWC

...the fruit is front and center, while some of the more mineral notes lie in the background. Today, the Preuses is all about texture.

90-91The Wine Advocate

...exhibits a strongly alkaline, almost metallic streak, though this is satisfactorily integrated into a bright matrix of crabapple, grapefruit and white peach.

90-92Burghound.com

An airy, pure and elegant nose is not necessarily any more refined but it is more complex with lemon-tinged green fruit plus mineral reduction and sea breeze notes.
