Critical Acclaim

"Medium yellow. Very pure aromas of ripe peach, lime and flowers, with a mineral component and roasted botrytis tones. Penetrating and perfumed in the mouth, with terrific cut and energy to its mineral-driven stone and citrus fruit flavors. Conveys a strong impression of calcaire energy. Wonderfully balanced, deep, very long wine with terrific finishing grip and aromatic clarity. "
94 Points

"Lots of botrytis spice and clove honey, with hints of dried lemon. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with honey and cooked apple flavors. Spicy and long, with just a hint of vanilla. Very pretty and balanced. Best after 2013. 1,250 cases made."

"A sleeper of the vintage."
