Wine Spectator, June 2018
A seductive style, offering tiers of complex flavors, with a mishmash of green apple, citrus, pear, melon and fig, framed with smoky toasty oak that displays a delicate manner. Drink now through 2022. 600 cases made. — JL

Buttered orchard fruits, orange blossom, and white flower notes flow to a rich, concentrated, layered white that has nicely integrated acuity, no hard edges, and a clean finish. This cuvée spent 12 months in 25% new French oak (the balance in stainless steel), and it should drink nicely for 4-6 years.
