Awards and/or Press Quotes
Decanter 93 Points. The complete package. Rich and substantial palate with a lovely depth of fruit. Citrus, tropical and vanilla notes. Persistent flavour with a long, fresh, balanced finish.
International Wine & Spirit Competition 2020 Gold Medal - 96 Points
Wine Enthusiast 92 Points. Rich and dense, this wine is full, generous and intense. It is not quite mature, although it is already delicious with spice, layers of botrytis and aromatic honey. Remember that 2013 was a fine Sauternes vintage and the wine will age further. Drink from 2021
