Tight and focused on the palate, with good concentration, it has a stunning sense of precision and elegance as well as length. It's another thrill a minute from this team that should be snatched up by readers!

The medium-bodied palate explodes with ultra perfumed, layered flavors, grainy, super fresh and finishing very long.- EB

Rich and layered, the 2018 is intriguing, but it is also not totally put together just yet. Even so, its potential is evident. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of floral overtones and bright, red-toned fruit, both of which I associate with Swan clone Pinots, but there is a lot of tannin lurking beneath. At this stage, the two components in this wine do not feel fully melded together. -- Antonio Galloni
