'Light yellow gold, fine silver reflections. Fine blossom honey, delicately underlaid with candied orange zest, hints of coconut and dried herbs, ripe yellow stone fruit notes, fine, very clear bouquet. Medium complexity, almost delicate, light-footed, ripe peach-pineapple hints, finely structured, fine lemony notes, immensely harmonious, could be drunk immediately, a silky, slender Yquem, which scores with good length. A "vin de plaisir".' - Falstaff, 94/100 (Tasted in March 2012)

'Preserved apricot, spice that is almost peppery on the nose, excellent creaminess and succulence with simple, flawless acidic integration. Still all primary, although there is crystallised ginger and mushroom hinting at the development that will come in due course.' - Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 18.5/20 (Tasted in 2020)
