96 points "A pale shimmering hue, green tinged, and like the wines that preceded it there are some bubbles of residual carbon dioxide lingering here. A super nose, with a deep, limey, minerally, smoky and fresh style. There is perhaps the faintest tinge of residual sulphur here too, but it is very subtle and is of no consequence. Gorgeously fresh despite being deeply structured, plush and rich, with a great, broad character. Creamy fruit richness, precisely defined, very upright and composed, but with plenty of fleshy substance, so although this wine is in a very early stage of what should be a lengthy evolution, it is still beautifully balanced and delightfully easy to drink. But no doubt in five, ten or twenty years time, protected by the crisp, tingling and perfectly delineated acidity that it possesses, it will be a fabulous experience. A wonderful wine with huge potential." Best 2012-2025
