James Suckling
Wonderful aromas of fresh herbs, such as sage and mint. Currants. Extremely aromatic. Full body. Fantastic tension and focus. Reminds me of the 1974. Really exceptional. Gorgeous. Cool and sleek. James Suckling - JamesSuckling.com, February 14, 2020

Very solid, with a direct beam of steeped black currant and plum fruit, carried by hits of loam and black licorice. A loamy note mingles with the fruit through the broad finish, while light herb and singed alder hints check in. Best from 2021 through 2031. J.M. - Wine Spectator, November 15, 2020
