Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2011

Medium green-yellow. The multifaceted nose of this wine fascinates with lemon thyme, orange, greengage plum and fresh tobacco leaf. Generous and full-bodied in the mouth, with mango, pear and sweet apple flavors elegantly framed by refreshing lemony acidity. This complex and wonderfully balanced wine carries effortlessly over the palate and persists on the long finish. Superb aging potential here: drink until 2024.
