94 points Wine Spectator 

Expressive aromas and flavors of white flowers, honey, peach, lemon and mineral pervade the sleek texture. Taut and reserved, showing fine balance and length. Best from 2021 through 2029. 32 cases imported. BS (5/2020)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

This is actually quite aromatically similar to the Caillerets but with the interesting difference that the nose is markedly more restrained, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in such a young wine, but it is a notable departure from its stablemate. There is more volume, mid-palate density and richness if a bit less vivacity to the utterly delicious and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that flash plenty of minerality on the long, serious and firm finale where the warmth is a bit more prominent. This opulent yet focused effort already possesses outstanding depth though the warmth is not subtle so I would suggest serving it on the cooler side. I would further note that the finish is a bit less tightly wound and while that doesn't mean it's ready for prime time, I suspect that it will drink pretty well after only 3 to 4 years of bottle aging.
