Press and Awards

Millésime 2017 - 17+/20 - Jancis Robinson. "(...)Putty and pears. Startling purity and direction - it's like a solid rod of that beautiful aqua-green recycled glass. Salty, traces of iodine, samphire, tangy citric soft cheese and Asian pear. The acidity has an intense, clenched structure, as if it's fiercely braced for impact and would shatter into a thousand crystals. It almost tastes too young to drink. This wine will divide a room, but I think it whoud be fantastic with goat's cheese, whether soufflé, salad or crostini. Don't drink too cold. "
