RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

An oyster shell aroma sets the stage for this elegant, alluring white. Peach, hazelnut and buttered pastry flavors and a briny, minerally theme ride out the creamy texture and long aftertaste. Shows excellent harmony and length.

93Stephen Tanzer

Pure but reticent aromas of white peach, spices and spring flowers. Pristine and intensely flavored but more imploded than the Chalumeaux, conveying a tight grain and noteworthy inner-mouth lift to its bracing citrus and white peach flavors.

91Burghound.com

Riper, mildly exotic and pure nose offers up of lemon peel, dried white flowers, lychee ... equally good purity to the attractively intense, vibrant and borderline creamy medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth and length
