RATINGS

95Wine Spectator

Opulent, sporting a broad swath of peach, apple, honey and spice flavors across the palate, well-supported by tangy acidity. Hangs around on the finish for a long time, echoing ripe fruit and spice notes. Excellent length.

89-92Burghound.com

A well-layered nose combines notes of petrol, smoke and a nicely broad range of white orchard fruit scents. The mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is also really quite seductive thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract

88-90The Wine Advocate

Hints of clear honey, candy floss and almond. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, the oak showing through a little more than other cuvées, but with satsifying weight and length on the walnut-tinged finish.

88-92Stephen Tanzer

Nose dominated by nectar of yellow peach. A step up in texture and ripeness from the Abbaye de Morgeot, displaying more body and flesh and a higher-alcohol impression without coming across as flabby.
