94/100 – James Suckling
17.0+/20 – Jancis Robinson

“This is deep and layered with plenty of lime, lemon, cooked apple and hot stone character on the nose and palate. Full body, yet fresh and vivid. A blend of chardonnay and viognier. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

“Unusual blend of Viognier and Chardonnay that more than convinces. Oats, honeyed white fruits and a hint of candied orange on the nose. Peach, apricot and ripe mandarin with a fine citrus nerve and with understated but clearly noticeable oak. Freshness prickle of youth. Irresistible and fresh. Bingo!” – Jancis Robinson

Tasting Note: Rhône meets Tuscany: an elegant blend of Viognier and Chardonnay from this Tuscan estate’s chalkiest terroir. Vinified and matured in old French oak to enhance its complexity. The nose is redolent of stone fruits, with a honeyed, waxy quality and hints of white pepper. The palate shows surprising restraint, with a lean, crisp and utterly refreshing finish. This release will continue to evolve, but it is showing so much aromatic complexity and beautiful structure right now it’s hard to resist. Fully organic and biodynamic.
