Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - James Suckling:
"A super-elegant Puligny-Montrachet with a very fine tannin and mineral structure. Still tightly wound, the peach and citrus aromas expanding as it aerates in the glass. Just a hint of fresh pineapple. Then comes the very long and precise finish that has delightful delicacy. Drink or hold." (7/26/2021)

93-96 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Prominent notes of honeysuckle and passion fruit are laced with a variety of spice and citrus elements. There is good richness and an abundance of dry extract to the strikingly refined flavors that possess a gorgeous mouthfeel while delivering flat out superb length on the balanced finale. This is very classy juice that should basically age for as long as anyone would reasonably like." (6/10/2021)
