95 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "This 3ha parcel, picked in different stages for balance and complexity, includes some Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, but is predominantly a comparatively rare, top-end Chardonnay. Sweetly oaked, it's leesy and beeswaxy, with notes of musk, citrus and lanolin, some fruit sweetness and a long, racy yet concentrated finish. Drinking Window: 2021-2028. (Oct 2019)"

91-95 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Fresh lemon and lime colour, with a really racy nose, maybe some reductive character, certainly some phenolics which for me is a positive. Completely fills the mouth, white flowers, fresh apples, but also some pears to give a bit more flesh, perfectly judged acidity and the oak is nicely integrated. The barrels are made out of 2.5 year air-dried trees from the local forest of Cîteaux. (Nov 2019)"

91-94 points Fine Wine Review: "Beautiful stony nose. Good freshness, balance, depth, nice structure. No overripeness. Unique wine. (11/16/19)"
