Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89 (2018 Oct.)

Here the ripe and fresh nose displays a bit more Chablis typicity on the pear and white peach aromas that also flashes a touch of exotic character. The suave, indeed even silky medium-bodied flavors possess slightly more size, weight and mid-palate concentration while delivering sneaky good length on the sappy and well-balanced finale. This isn't classic in style but it is attractive in its fashion and should also drink well young.

Vinous - Score: 89-91 (2017 Aug.)

Pale, bright yellow. Classic citrus scents of lemon and grapefruit. At once sweeter, deeper and more energetic than the Petit Chablis, conveying an almost plush texture to its citrus fruit flavors. After the creamy middle, the finish is firm, taut and incisive. With its moderate acidity, this wine will drink well young but it will also have mid-term aging potential.
