Reviews and Ratings

Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light and soft on the nose showing creamy lemon curd and ripe cantaloupe notes with a hint of Honeysuckle florals. Shows more of a citrus character on the mid palate, medium acidity and leaner than one might expect. Slightly oxidized and possibly a bit of botrytis. Medium bodied, just a hint of residual sugar. Fresh citrus carries through medium long finish. Nice with a carbonara.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale straw coloured with a nose of ripe pear, gooseberry, yellow apple, and lemon with a touch of white flowers as well. The yellow apple, pear, and lemon appear in the taste and the acidity is at a nice level for the fruit. A nice wine for a chicken stir-fry with a touch of spiciness.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nose offers light aromas of floral and lemon. The palate offers pear, apple and a nice citrus zing.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light and delicate, floral notes including a hint of rose and also ripe tree fruit and citrus. Ripe fruity flavours, light to medium bodied, a bit off-dry. Overall, quite a delicate wine. Try with white fish dishes.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A little bit subdued nose, with hints of flowers and orchard fruits.Nice balance between acidity and bitterness.A simple wine that needs food for making it bloom.Would try it with bruschetta (with fresh garlic), or warm chevre croutons.
Tom Vigeant rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Quite light on the nose, wet stone, white flowers, honeycombs. Medium acidity, light to medium body with notes of citrus that linger through a long finish. Mussels, oysters, chevre.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow color.

Notes of apple, stone and animal.

Thie wine is nerve, elegant and long.

Pair it with a salmon burger.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

This wine is ready to drink but can be aged 2-3 years.
