RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

...incipiently complex bouquet featuring scents of white flowers, Anjou pear, fresh peach, fresh pastry and flinty reduction. Medium to full-bodied, deep and satiny, it's a lively, concentrated wine with lovely mid-palate amplitude and a lively, saline finish.

95James Suckling

Lime and apple. Lychee. Medium to full body. Long and lively.

92Vinous / IWC

Baking powder, mandarin, yellow fruit and albumen notes on the nose are all very well defined. The palate is nicely balanced with a keen spine of acidity. It's tangy towards the marmalade-tinged finish. Very fine.

17+ Jancis Robinson

...oak spice, creamy/mealy richness. Deep and rich in fruit, clearly ripe but perfectly so, the acidity slicing through the oak. Really impressive baby. Lots to chew on and great length.
