Wine Spectator 95 FOR THE 2014 VINTAGE
Chiseled, with a pure beam of gooseberry, white asparagus and white peach flavors inlaid with light talc, chamomile and mineral accents. The long finish vibrates like a tuning fork, leaving a mouthwatering echo. Gorgeous. Drink now through 2027.—
Jancis Robinson NA FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
Plentiful oak but it all melds together effortlessly on the palate with tremendous ripe citrus fruit expression and vanilla spice. Magical stuff. (17.5/20)
Wine Spectator 95 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
Beautiful from the start, with crème fraîche and tarragon accents gliding in first, followed by macadamia nut, lime curd, gooseberry gelée and yellow apple fruit flavors. The finish pulls in a fleur de sel hint while creamy accents keep the upper hand. Drink now through 2028. From France.
