Subtly wooded, with mouthwatering salinity, this shows the dry extract and concentration that are features of the vintage complemented by creamy, pillowy lees. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028

The wine is beautifully pure and complex on both the nose and palate, with a nice sense of reserve that augurs very, very well for its future evolution in bottle. The nose delivers a refined mix of pear, fresh lime, flinty minerality, citrus peel, dried flowers and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with great nascent complexity, a superb core, bright acids and outstanding focus and grip on the soil-driven and stellar finish.

Medium to full-bodied, satiny and complete, it's layered and multidimensional, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and a long, penetrating finish. - WK

The pear is rounder and riper on the palate but that freshness remains, leading to cooling, concentrated and chalky depth. It has elegance and lasting freshness—a triumph in 2018. Enjoy through 2040.

(91-93 points) Not surprisingly this is aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is a whiff of wood in evidence. The slightly sleeker and finer medium-bodied flavors possess good power and punch while...   (91-93 points) Not surprisingly this is aromatically similar to the Fourchaume though here there is a whiff of wood in evidence. The slightly sleeker and finer medium-bodied flavors possess good power and punch while remaining refined and composed on the impressively long and well-balanced finale.

Ripe apples and pears with crushed-stone undertones on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, creamy and layered with a subtle, focused finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator, December 2020
A mix of apple, lemon, lanolin and a touch of vanilla mark this rich white. It's backed by vibrant acidity and the lingering aftertaste suggests lanolin and mineral notes. Drink now through 2028. – BS
