Such a generous and ripe wine with a dark core of tannins surrounded by opulent fruit. Black fruits coffee very concentrated flavors a powerhouse of structure and richness. The warmth of the wine is palpable as is the aging potential. R.V. Wine Enthusiast.

What a gorgeous nose of ripe dark fruits such as bramble berries blueberries and currants with hints of orange flowers. This is so tight and focused with laser-guided tannins. It starts very slowly and then builds and builds and builds on the palate. Currants and blackberries galore yet a tangy firm and creamy textured tannin structure. Racy muscular structure. Try in 2021. James Suckling.

vibrancy and precision that is historic and possibly unprecedented. Some graphite emerges as the wine sits in the glass

An extraordinary nose of plum, blueberry, raspberry, crushed rock, and that intriguing floral as well as unsmoked cigar tobacco note (a classic sign of this terroir) is followed by a wine of creamy unctuosity reminiscent of 1989, but there is a freshness, vibrancy and precision that is historic and possibly unprecedented. Some graphite emerges as the wine sits in the glass, but the wine is very thick while at the same time precise and elegant. This is the quintessential expression of one of the greatest wine terroirs of the world.

Winemaker's Notes:

This *blockbuster* blend of 62% Sauvignon Blanc and 38% Semillon has absolutely amazing texture, with superb lemon butter, crushed rock, quince and marmalade notes buttressed by hints of orange zest and citrus oil. Rich and full-bodied, with a *sensational fragrance*, this is an exquisite, full-throttle white to drink over the next 30+ years. *Utterly profound*!" --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rated: 98+ pts.*
