Last year this property produced an outstanding wine. This year, the instability of the sample made assessment difficult. Certainly, there is enormous concentration and fine acidity, but it is impossible to be precise as to how good it will become, so the mark is only an approximation and could well go up. The sample was cloudy and dark. 4 stars. Score: 17.5 Decanter Magazine,
Lots of ripe power comes out on the nose lush apricot and peach. The palate is lighter, less complex, with fresh lemon and lime very much in evidence. Richer weightier fruit is there towards the finish, the candied peel intermingles with the apricot and peach. Score: 87-90 Derek Smedley MW
Honeyed gold. Hint of veg on the nose. Big and round and molten. A burnt edge. A bit hot. All mass rather than finesse Score: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW,
Thick and oily, with spicy character and lots of very ripe pineapple and pear flavors. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long finish. Layered and concentrated. 91-94 Score: 91-94 James Suckling,
This has a lovely rounded honeyed, slightly buttery nose with touches of white peach and white flowers. The palate is very well balanced, great tension and weight in the middle. Honeyed fruits, mango, peach, a touch of brioche and quince. Complex and displaying some admirable levels of botrytis, the finish is viscous and very focused. Great length. Superb. Drink 2012-2040. Tasted April 2008. Score: 92-94 Wine Advocate
