This is bright and vivid with fantastic structure and tension. Aromas of lightly cooked apples, cream and hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied, yet so bright and agile. Goes on for minutes. Minerally, tangy and bright. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

97 points, James Suckling (Dec 2019)

This is more intensely flavoured than I remember vintages past, still with the trademark peachy fruit and riffs of dried mango billowing across seams of salubrious French oak and a creamy nougatine core. If I could sum this up in a single word, it would be ‘sumptuous'. Fealty to place manifest in the vigour of flavour and palate-whetting acidity, steering a long passage.
