Wine Enthusiast 95 points - One expects elegance, grace and precision from this prestige cuvée, and this wine delivers that and much more. There is a refined complexity running through it, from the cascading tiny bubbles to the lush, toasty nose to the dense, palate-tickling, complex mouthfeel, which continues seamlessly through to a long, ultrasatisfying finish. Stylish and seductive. Score: 95. —Paul Gregutt, December 15, 2000.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Lovely aromas of candied berry, coffee and citrus pick up a mineral accent as this glides across the palate. Elegant, with depth, balance and grace that lasts and lasts. Fine, lingering aftertaste. Drink now. Score: 91. —Bruce Sanderson, November 15, 2004.
