"The most refined pinot, perhaps. Ferrous, the Gevrey; this, the Chambolle, for lack of a better comparison. Sappy, crunchy and finessed across a red fruited weave of a mineral thread, this lovely wine offers a long caress across the palate. Nothing out of place." FEB 2018. 96 points Ned Goodwin.
"Full-ish red colour with a brick-red tinge. The bouquet is subdued, savoury and earthy, possibly reflecting the oak influence, and maybe a trace of sulfide. The palate is initally a little hollow and dips in the middle, but it changed enormously in the glass. It improved as it aired and warmed, building lovely perfumes involving cherry fruit and toasty oak. Ultimately, delicious." JUL 2018. 95 points Huon Hooke.
"A taut release. A tense wine. Riddled with spice, cut with chicory, strung on a high wire of acidity. As smoky and savoury as it is structural and complex. There’s fruit here, dry, appropriate, impressive, but as a conduit to the structure, the process, the discipline. It’s good. It’s very good." JUL 2018. 94 points Campbell Mattinson.
