RATINGS

Strikingly fresh, cool and pure nose of mineral reduction, ripe pear, sea water and floral aromas. There is flat out remarkable power to the highly energetic flavors that also display ample amounts of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture

92The Wine Advocate

Crisp Granny Smith apple and yellow plum-scented bouquet that is nicely defined.... The palate is very well balanced with a fresh, crisp opening. I like the energy conveyed by this les Clos and its precision from start to finish

91Wine Spectator

A distinctive aroma of sandalwood leads into flavors of vanilla, peach and melon in this balanced white, which has good cut, just needs time to shrug off the initial oak influence.

90Vinous / IWC

. The soft, supple palate is rounded in the mouth, presenting orange pith, nectarine, a touch of white pepper and light stem ginger flavors toward the elegant if not overly complex finish.
