95Wine Spectator

A ripe style, offering apple pie, peach, vanilla, clove and nutmeg flavors. Creamy and plush, with a lingering finish of apple, pastry and spice. Fine length.

94The Wine Advocate

...very refined with hints of orange blossom...palate is very well balanced with a keen line of acidity, good tension and particular fine salinity here that urges you back for another sip.

93Stephen Tanzer

Captivating floral perfume to the aromas of white peach and noble herbs...palate conveys an almost glyceral thickness in the style of the year but its savory umami character gives it finesse and notes of herbs and flowers provide lift...plush, fat, nicely balanced Bâtard finishes with lovely aromatic freshness.
