‘Classic and expressive with seductive aromas of marmalade and honeysuckle, the 2020 Vin de Constance Natural Sweet Wine is fresh, balanced and complex, offering a delightful lift from 60% new oak. Clocking in at 13.5% alcohol, the palate displays a harmonious balance between fruit sweetness and energetic acidity. It has layers of complexity with impeccable breadth and depth. It may be one of the finest expressions of Vin de Constance to date, and it ends with succulent flavors of apricots, saffron, quince paste and sweet candied citrus tones over the long, ever-evolving finish. Aged for a year and a half in 50% new Hungarian and French oak barrels, followed by an additional year and a half of large format wooden foudre, only the best lots end up being selected for the final blend. Bravo! Run, don’t walk to buy this world-class sweet wine to put in your cellar! 2023-2070’ – Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 97/100

‘World-renowned & highly individual Natural Sweet from muscat de Frontignan, 2020 picked over 19 separate occasions, creating contrasting layers of white flowers, perfume & fresh acid with richer litchi & apricot flavours culminating in a pith & peel finish. 50% new oak, some Hungarian, 18 months, then old foudres, same duration. Also-tasted 2019 (95 pts) starting to show some development but both are wines for the ages..’ – Platter's Guide, 5* (97/100)

‘The latest Vin de Constance is a very good rather than truly great iteration of this famous sweet wine, but that still makes it pretty special. Made with 28 different batches of Muscat de Frontignan, picked over the space of only three weeks because of the hotter vintage, it has honey, barley sugar, guava and apricot flavours, scented oak spices and a finish that combines glycerol with bright acidity. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 96/100
