Gilbert and Gaillard 90 Points. ‘Pale gold. Refined nose showing a harmonious fusion of white-fleshed fruits, mirabelle flesh and floral notes. The same array of aromas recurs on the palate, emphasised by fine texture and pronounced freshness, all of which is precise and persistent. A great classic.’
Wine Spectator 92 Points
James Suckling 90 Points. ‘This is a bold style of NV with plenty of deep-set aromatic complexity - think toasted almond, citrus blossom, honey and dried spices. The palate has fleshy depth and drive with bold stone fruit flesh and a rich phenolic presence to anchor the finish. Richness ahead of subtlety. Drink now.’
Stephen Tanzer 90 Points
