Tasting Notes

This is a formidable white that grows on the palate with dried apples, pears, lemons and hints of lime. Full-bodied, tight and focused. This is a tight and powerful wine. Phenolic and bright. This is an ager as always. Get it on release.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2018

Moderate reduction masks the fruit today though it doesn't seem as though it will last for more than a few years. There is excellent punch to the beautifully well-detailed big-bodied flavors that ooze an evident salinity on the muscular and powerful finish that evidences enough dryness to be of some concern. My intuition is that the dryness is sulfur-based and thus will progressively dissipate with age

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (71), June 2018

Creamy, rich nose with cereal and cooked apple fruit and loads of weight on the palate. Full, powerful, formidable. Certainly has the stature of grand cru, and there is potential for the flavour range to emerge with time. (RH )2019 - 2029
