Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, 90 points: (17/20) Barrel sample. Blue schist in parts. On Cambrian soil (also in Banyuls). Very slow fermentation.

Wine Enthusiast, 91 points: Hayflower, dried apple peel and chalky earth create a quintessential Alsace Riesling nose. The palate is juicy in an apple flavor, with a pith-like texture on the streamlined body. The finish is dry. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
