About

93

" Distinctive, with lively bitter citrus, white peach, jasmine and acacia notes providing the top end, while wet straw, yellow apple and heather elements fill in the bass line. Shows lovely harmony, precision and length, with a reserve of minerality that should stretch out after some cellaring. Rock-solid. Best from 2016 through 2022. 200 cases made. "

92 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

" (fermented and raised in new barriques): Pale gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe citrus and pit fruits, tarragon and honey, complemented by a building, smoky mineral accent. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering intense tangerine, poached pear and honeysuckle flavors that pick up a sweet vanilla nuance on the back half. Smoothly combines power and vivacity and finishes on a vibrant mineral note, showing superb energy and sappy persistence."
