Critics’ scores

Neal Martin (Vinous) gave the wine a score of 93-95 points saying it was, ‘focused and very well delineated, classic in style’.

William Kelley (Wine Advocate) awarded it the same score saying it was a ‘terrific success’. ‘A wine to buy in memory of Anthony Barton,’ said Jane Anson who gave it 94-points.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) scored it slightly lower at 90-92 points.

Fair Value analysis

Buyers looking for value might be interested in the 2014, which is available for £630 per dozen, or the 2017 at £570. Both wines have the same score from Martin as today’s release.

Similarly, with a score of 94-points, the 2018 is currently available for £680 per dozen – a slight premium for a wine with a few years in bottle.
