Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2019 Mar.)

As there was when first reviewed (see herein), there is a barely discernible touch of wood framing the green apple, lemon peel, floral, iodine and oyster shell nuances where a subtle nuance of exotic fruit hovers in the background. The intense, powerful and sleekly muscular big-bodied flavors possess excellent volume and mid-palate concentration before terminating in a long, crisp and very dry finish. This is really quite good and particularly so for the vintage though I would definitely advise continue patience as this remains quite tightly wound.

Vinous - Score: 95 (2015 Aug.)

Pale yellow. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Preuses, offering strong oyster-shell minerality lifted by lavender and violet nuances. Densely packed, tactile and suave, displaying outstanding energy and inner-mouth citrussy lift. Comes across as less violent than the Preuses, and more perfumed on the palate. Finishes with oustanding length and a magically light touch.
