About

95

Rich, but pure and incredibly focused, with a laser beam of chamomile and quince cutting through the core of dried pineapple, white peach, Cavaillon melon and green plum. The finish has buried minerality, gorgeous mouthfeel and superb length. Drink now through 2030. 1,500 cases made. –JM

With so much intensity, botrytis and concentration, this is going to be impressive. It is still very young, at a closed stage, but the ripe currant as well as the honey dominate. Great wine

94 Gilbert & Gaillard

Sparkling pale gold with greenish tints. Rich nose with stewed accents, overripe quince and lovely spicy touches. Taut, ethereal palate, savoury and racy, showing grace and flowing into a fresh finish that lingers on and on. A superlative wine destined for a long life.
