Decanter   94/100

This takes a minute to lift out of the glass, with a focus on texture more than aromatics, but it’s highly attractive with a luscious, gorgeous texture and flavours that are concentrated but elegant and fine, showing touches of mandarin, saffron and spice alongside a creamy citrus mid-palate. The harvest took place between 10 and 31 October, later than last year - the day they finished in 2017 was the day they started in 2018. A yield of 17hl/ha. Drinking Window 2022 - 2042

James Suckling   93-94/100

Very clean and fresh with banana, pineapple and papaya character and hints of honey. Medium-to full-bodied, sweet and crisp. Lively finish. Jasmine and acacia with hints of spice. Slightly crisper style. More sauvignon than normal.

Jancis Robinson   17.5/20

75% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc. Barrel sample. Gorgeous ripe aroma of pineapple and ripe lemon, and apricot. Sweet, luscious and full of that lovely almond bitterness of botrytised wines. Full in the mouth, generous, long and fresh with a fine almond-paste bitterness at the end. Long. (JH) 14.4% Drink 2025-2040
