Media Reviews

Jane Anson

Rich and powerful, this is a seductive Barsac that has a great balance of acidity and sweetness, nothing too over the top, full of lime zest and mandarin, with tongue-licking slate on the finish. Great stuff, extremely well balanced. A yield of 16hl/ha. 10 months in barrel for ageing followed by nine months in stainless steel. 96 points

Jancis Robinson

Coppery gold colour. Very exuberant on the nose and with dramatic, expressive botrytised fruit on the palate. Very rich but edgy and energetic too. Firm and fresh with a floral note. A modern Barsac! Impressive to have managed this quality and this (relatively) generous yield. 17 points

Michael Schuster

Pale gold; fresh honey and lemon nose; medium-full, fresh, medium-sweet; a light botrytis complexity here, but the overall impression is of a fresh, elegant, stylish wine, limited in scope, but also with very nice length. A slender, fine, and very attractive aperitif style. 91–92 points
