RATINGS

96Stephen Tanzer

...Superconcentrated from entry through finish: thick, urgent fruit is amazingly intense, with its superb sweetness leavened by brisk lemony acidity. Powerful yet quite fine. Explosive time delay of a finish refuses to quit.

95-98The Wine Advocate

...exhibits sublime lemon, mineral, flower, and wet stone aromatics as well as a feminine, silky, refined, classy, and medium-to-full-bodied personality. Raspberries, currants, roses, flint, and flavors reminiscent of a massive bouquet...

93Wine Spectator

Showy Chablis. Well made and exotic, in a heavily toasted style, showing wonderful lemon, honey, spice and mocha complexity and excellent fresh acidity. Bursts with intense flavors that perk up the palate...
