RATINGS

94James Suckling

Rich and super fresh grapefruit and lime aromas. The palate has a very succulent core of fruit and very impressive acidity. The young white peaches are zesty and fresh and the grilled hazelnuts warm the finish. Stunning!

18.5Jancis Robinson

Rich but with a fine dusty restraint. Deep and spicy on the palate, fills the mouth with pure citrus fruit and goes on for ever with a lovely depth of texture from the lees.

92Burghound.com

Ripe and very fresh aromas of plum, various red berries and a pretty floral element. The opulent and highly seductive medium weight flavors are shaped by firm but not rigid tannins on the balanced finish.

91-93The Wine Advocate

Spiced pears, toasted nuts, iodine, tangerine oil and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good depth and concentration... built around chewy dry extract, fleshy fruit and succulent balancing acids

91-93Vinous / IWC

Bouquet of vibrant citrus fruit infused with touches of linden and orange pith. The palate is quite assertive on the entry, conveying good weight.. lightly spiced, though this cuvée shows more marine influences and a tang of marmalade
