Falstaff Magazine (92)- "Fragrant and inviting nose, delicate wood spice, vanilla, ripe cassis and white pepper spice. Very soft on the palate, full and clear, creamy touch, well-integrated acidity in the background, full-bodied finish."
James Suckling (93)- "This is a really minerally with stone and chalk, as well as sliced pears and cooked apples. Full and flavorful. Chalk again at the end. Lovely texture. Drink now. "
