James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2014

Knockout nose combines peach, citrus fruits, white flowers, saffron, honey and stone complicated by very pure lemony botrytis. Extremely deep and concentrated but youthfully closed, showing a powerful floral character to the peach, passion fruit and marzipan flavors.

Jancis Robinson - Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, January 2015
17.5/20 Dense and spicy, and a sense of richness, opens to a real aromatic intensity. Very rich and spicy and intense. Big, powerful and still zesty – great concentration and impressive. (JH)
