Critical Acclaim

"Tiny, persistent bubbles are the first sign of this wine's refinement. It delivers the tuffeau soil savor and the quince-scented chenin of Vouvray in an extremely dry style, its laser focus softened by scents of orange blossom, honey and fresh cream. Youthful and tightly wound, this will age with grace."
93 Points

"Pale yellow with a strong bead. Lemon rind and pear on the nose, plus a strong note of talc. Tangy and sharply focused on entry, offering brisk citrus and dusty mineral flavors that gain richness with air while retaining vivacity. Then quite dry on the back, with noteworthy finishing clarity and lingering minerality. This puts on weight with air and will be very flexible at the table. "
