Neal Martin (Vinous), awarding a barrel score of 96-98 points, described the wine as ‘very harmonious and poised, with a sophisticated, mineral-driven finish’.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent) described ‘playful scents of Morello cherries, wild blueberries, and juicy plums leading to fragrant suggestions of violets, dark chocolate, rosebud tea, and star anise’, awarding 97-99 points.
