94 points Wine Enthusiast
Exuberant wine, almost exotic in its flavors, with ripe currant and a lining of honey. Full in the mouth, intense and concentrated. (RV) (6/2011)93 points Vinous
Pale golden yellow. Unctuous bouquet of apple blossom, candied lemon, lanolin and clover. Creamy yet refined, with the apricot pit flavor retaining a juicy, mouthwatering freshness. Finishes strong and succulent, with tropical fruits and toasted almond. In this warm vintage, most of the beautiful concentration in this superb late-harvest chenin blanc was a result of desiccation of the grapes rather than botrytis. (JBP) (12/2014)
