95pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The NV Grand Cuvée opens with a beautiful, very clear and delicate bouquet that displays very fine toast, nougat, hazelnut, ripe and dried fruit (raisins), floral and concentrated (and refreshing) citrus fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a generously rich, mature yet fresh, highly finessed and elegant prestige cuvée with a long, complex, tensioned and beautifully mineral finish with tangy citrus flavors."  Apr 2018

Wine Spectator:  "This is all about balance and the integration of power and finesse, with finely honed acidity supporting flavors of quince paste, dried black cherry, spun honey and candied orange zest, while rich notes of roasted walnut, coffee liqueur
and
toasted cardamom resonate on the finish. Hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2028."  Nov 2018
  
Vinous:  
"Light gold. Nectarine, poached pear, toasted nuts, anise and buttered toast on the complex, mineral-tinged nose. Deeply concentrated but energetic and precise as well, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors along with notes of brioche and marzipan. A bitter citrus pith note adds definition to the impressively long, smoky finish. Shows more power and heft than I've experienced from this bottling in recent years."  Jan 2015  

Decanter:  "A distinctive nose with honey, toast  and cashew leads to a palate that's just as powerful and pronounced, with an exotic, dry, umami richness comprising dried crystalline fruits, peach, biscuit and cream, and a touch of well-executed oak. Good acidity and terrific length."  Oct 2018
  
Winery:  "Light golden color and fine, vivacious bubbles, holding a promise of pleasure. * Aromas of flowers in bloom, ripe & dried citrus fruit as well as marzipan and gingerbread.  Flavors of hazelnut, nougat, barley sugar, jellied and citrus fruits, almonds, brioche and honey, among many others."
