"The concentration of a warm year on the nose, but it translates into depth. Sweet mandarin and lemon, mushroom and balsamic spice. Proper substance and concentration, but poised at the same time. Confit-lemon finish and almost a touch salty. With aeration, it’s still brooding but with plenty of minerally, stony, saline notes." (Walter Speller for Jancisrobison.com (July 2020)
