Publication Score Comments
Vinous 90 (all stainless steel) Limpid straw-gold. Meyer lemon, green apple and honeysuckle on the tightly focused nose. Taut, refreshingly bitter citrus pith and quince flavors deepen and stretch out on the back half. Closes long and minerally, showing very good focus and lingering florality.
