2018 Vintage reviews: 

Wine Advocate : 95-97/100

Wine Spectator : 96-99/100
"Dark plum and boysenberry fruit is laced with tobacco and chalk notes, while the fleshy grip slowly builds through the finish. This is seriously long, and though the fruit is gorgeous, the minerality steals the show in the end"

J. Suckling : 96-97/100
"This is one of the best wines I have had from here. Full-bodied yet focused and super dynamic. Tight and linear with fantastic length and energy at the end. Exciting."

Bettane et Desseauve : 17-17,5/20
"De l'envergure et beaucoup de fraîcheur pour ce premier encore dans ses langes, on sent une trame assurée, une persistance aromatique qui va s'affiner au fil des mois pour engendrer le grand style truffier de la propriété."
