Critical response 

The 2019 has an in-barrel score of 96-98 from The Wine Advocate. Then-reviewer Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW said it ‘delivers impactful black fruit preserves… with finely grained tannins and seamless freshness’. 

At her new publication, The Wine Independent, Perrotti-Brown delivered an in-bottle rating of 97-points. 

Antonio Galloni (Vinous) gave it a score of 94-97. Jane Anson said it was a ‘classic bottling’ and awarded 97-points. 

Fair value 

Despite the consistent scores, the 2019 is more expensive than several back vintages currently available in the market. 

The 2018, which also has 97-points from the Wine Advocate is available for 17.7% less. The higher-scoring 2015 (98-points) and 2016 (99-points) are also cheaper.
