95 Points Wine Spectator -
Very alluring, with light heather, honeycomb and hazelnut notes weaving around the creamed yellow apple, mirabelle plum and melon flavors. A lemon gelée note adds energy through the very lengthy finish. Drink now through 2020.
92 Points Vinous - Pale gold. Expansive aromas of ripe peach, pear liqueur, fig and pungent flowers, along with a smoky mineral nuance in the background. Palate-staining, impressively concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors show impressive clarity and become deeper with air, picking up a touch of honey. The honey and floral qualities come back emphatically on the persistent, pliant finish, which shows a suave blend of power and finesse.
