WE 95 WS 92 W&S 92 IWC 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - This is a full-bodied and ripe wine, showing some toastiness as well as concentrated apple and peach flavors. There is a crisp edge to this opulent and rich wine. It has a great future: it is drinkable now, but will continue well into the 2020s.
According to Wine Spectator - Tightly knit flavors of poached apple and apricot, lemon parfait, spun honey and ground anise are wrapped around a core of minerality in this harmonious Champagne. The refined, raw silk-like texture carries the smoke and chalk accents on the long finish. Drink now through 2027.
According to Wine & Spirits - A soft and approachable 2006, this wine has casual elegance, integrated sweet scents of cinnamon toast, touches of pale red fruit and tighter seashell minerality. Well made and firm, this is a festive wine for Dungeness crab.
According to International Wine Cellar - Light gold. Smoky, mineral-laced citrus fruits and honeysuckle on the incisive nose. Opens up slowly to offer juicy Meyer lemon and white peach flavors underscored by a note of candied ginger. This taut, focused example delivers plenty of youthful verve and strong finishing cut.
