This is a bit more generous out of the blocks than some of Matrot's other 2016s, but it will still reward a few years' bottle age.- WK

Wine Spectator, July 2018
Mineral, iodine and oyster shell aromas signal this sleek version. Racy in profile, with lemon, toasted oak and stone flavors that cling to the steely finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. 120 cases imported. — BS

Firm reduction makes the nose difficult to assess. Otherwise there is excellent size, weight and richness to the opulently textured middle weight flavors that possess slightly better cut and minerality on the sneaky long...   Firm reduction makes the nose difficult to assess.

Inviting aromas of white stone fruits, pineapple and crushed rock. Tactile, youthful wine with attractive inner-mouth citrus perfume and wet-stone minerality. Not a fat style but smooth and light on its feet. Finishes with good dusty grip and length. -- Stephen Tanzer
