Score: 91 | December 31, 2020 | Wine Enthusiast

Notes of lemon-flecked cornmeal and ripe Mirabelle are distinct but subtle on the nose of this wine. The palate adds juicy pear to the Mirabelle richness. Yeastiness anchors the fruit while gentle lemon provides freshness. This wine is rounded and harmonious, with a bright finish. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Subtle pear, hazelnut and lemon shimmer on this wine's shy nose. The palate brings in roundness and ripeness, think luscious Mirabelle with a touch of honey. Juicy and ripe lemon pervades all with its freshness while a smooth texture adds a balmy background. The wine has lovely harmony and balance. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Subtle smoke wraps itself around light notions of ripe Mirabelle on this wine's nose. Gentleness also defines the palate where well-captured ripeness is met with smoothest texture and a little smokiness, all illuminated by pure lemon freshness. This wine has a lovely balance and much elegance. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

EDITOR'S CHOICE - This wine's nose is a picture of subtlety. Hints of blossom, chalk, pear and lemon are so tender you feel you have to sniff again and again. The palate becomes a picture of smooth, gentle harmony and depth. Freshness, fruit, texture and chalky depth make for a gorgeous constellation. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Notes of yeast, chalk, ripe Amalfi lemon peel and white summer blossom unite into a seductive, creamy nose on this wine. Toasty, oaky smoke also hovers but is beautifully subdued. The palate also encompasses these notions but focuses on concentrated, stony depth and pithy texture. It's smooth, cool and bold. Give this elegant wine some time. Drink 2022–2040. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Only a slight quiver of smokiness intrudes on the wet chalk and lemon nose of this wine. The palate is striking in its serenity and balance, an apt representation of the ripe 2018 vintage. It offers immense juiciness but somehow, the age-old limestone complexity takes the lead, affirming that over the years, only depth will matter. Nonetheless, the wine has immense charm, smooth texture and absolute freshness. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

Some richness and oak influence. There’s a refined, white-peach edge and some plush fruit flesh, as well as a long powerful, tube-like drive through the finish. Terrific wine.
