Tania Thomas CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The fruit for this delightful Sauvignon Blanc is harvested in the cool climate region, ideal for its production, 150 km south of the city of Bordeaux. Elegant and complex, it is very well balanced with lively acidity and a hint of minerality. On the palate; grapefruit, lime and orange zest mingle with the tropical fruit, delicate jasmine flowers and a touch of smoke. Best enjoyed with salads and seafood.
It’s also great on its own as a delicious aperitif.
Deborah Podurgiel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

If I were to pair a wine with an oscar nominee, I would pair this wine with Dame Judi Dench. This wine is steely and flinty, with a nervy acidity and freshness, and a true expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. It is also the one Sauvignon Blanc that can tackle the tough dishes like fresh asparagus sauteed in a rice-wine vinegar and sesame oil garnished with sesame seeds, but it can also take on a grilled chicken breast and artichoke salad. I had it with a Tuna Tataki (Wolfgang Puck recipe) and ginger sauce. In short, it can take on and handle any role elegantly.
