RATINGS

92-94Vinous / IWC

Lovely floral perfume to the aromas of peach, nectarine and acacia. Then surprisingly taut in the mouth, showing superb cut and lift to the flavors of nectarine, flowers and minerals... Very long and vibrant on the aftertaste.

90-93Burghound.com

An appealingly fresh nose is composed of essence of pear, floral & white peach aromas that are trimmed in a touch of citrus. The vibrant & impressively detailed flavors deliver ample power & punch... intense & impressively persistent.
