97/100 points, Sam Kim / Wine Orbit
Immensely complex and seductive, the bouquet shows dark berry, bouquet garni, game, dried mushroom and toasted nut aromas. It's superbly concentrated on the palate delivering outstanding depth and breath, combined with seamless texture and beautifully infused tannins. Symphonic and engaging with an impressively long gratifying finish. At its best: now to 2035.
95/100, Bob Campbell MW / The Real Review
Elegant, seamless pinot noir with oyster shell, savoury/dried herbs, anise/spice and violet flavours.
Silken-textured wine that can be appreciated now but has good potential to develop with bottle age.

Deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. This has a delicate bouquet with aromas of bright floral, intermixed cranberry, cherry, tamarillo and savoury, earthy elements. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherry entwined with dried cranberry, unfolding tamarillo, hibiscus, herbs, mushroom and earthy notes. The wine shows purity of fruit, complex developed layers and lovely concentration. Integrated, lacy acidity elevates and lengthens to a hauntingly beautiful linger. This refined Pinot Noir possesses elegant layers of fruit, floral and earthy development, and persists to a long finish. Match with roasted quail and truffle risotto over the next 8 years.
