Critical response 

The wine was scored 98-points by Jane Anson, who said it ‘was another stunning success’, ‘wonderfully seductive and opulent’. 

Neal Martin writing for Vinous gave it a score of 97-points, saying it was ‘Sauternes-like even if it does not contain an ounce of botrytis,’ as well as ‘slightly Germanic towards the finish’. 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW of The Wine Independent gave it a score of 94-points. She said it was, ‘like liquid Turkish delight’. 

Fair Value 

The 2019 vintage has not yet been rated by the Wine Advocate. Nonetheless, it will need to achieve a score of at least 96-points in order to begin to look good value at its current price. 

Meanwhile, the 96-point 2018 also currently compares favourably with other back vintages, as does the 98-point 2013, which is also currently available for £540 (12×50).
