Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another very vibrant nose leaps from the glass: apple, a touch of pear, lemon curd and nectarine with great definition and pizzazz. The palate is medium-bodied, very finely balanced with touches of cooking apple, minerals, a little pear drop and elderflower. Superb. Drink now-2022. Tasted January 2010. (NM-Wine Journal)
*Cellar Selection* A wonderful, ripe wine, full of yellow fruits, textured with apple skins and a powerful edge of minerality. It shows power and concentration while offering smooth, rounded fruit flavors that also pack intense acidity and toast. For aging.
Though glycerol-like in texture, this is more angular in its approach, with vivid acidity driving the lime, baked apple, almond and mineral flavors. Offers fine intensity and length. Best from 2013 through 2022. (BS)

This hasn't budged in this large format bottling from my original review (see herein) and thus that opinion is repeated here save for the recommended drinking window: A subtle application of wood does not diminish the transparency of the resin, peach and white flower aromas that are nuanced by hints of spice and earth, both of which are also found on the rich, full-bodied and tautly muscled flavors that possess good mid-palate density, all wrapped in a moderately austere but lingering finish. This is really quite good and worth a look.

Ripe aromas of white flowers and white truffle. Boasts a bigger structure and more intensity than the village wines, with sound acidity giving a penetrating quality to the peach, apricot and crushed stone flavors. This is quite suave.
