Tasting note: Golden hue. Classic nose where mocha, gingerbread, a fruity, biscuity background and underlying touch of rancio intermix. Opulent, creamy mouthfeel, vinous style, full, rich in aroma, balanced by wonderful freshness. The epitome of art. (23-Oct-2009) [Gilbert & Gaillard]
Tasting note: Weighty wine with quite strong aldehydes and plenty of bready yeast character. Long and with a lovey texture. Big, mouthfilling wine with character and appeal. [Bob Campbell]
A rich, smoky champagne, with hints of marzipan and fennel seed accenting honeyed malt, bread dough, baked apple and gingersnap flavours. It's all focused by intense acidity, which meshes beautifully into the layers of flavour and refined texture, with a lingering finish. Drink: now through to 2021. Rating: 94 Points; Wine Spectator
