Wine Spectator 90 points - Clementine, white ginger, straw, verbena and white peach notes race along here, buttressed by lightly toasted brioche and salted butter hints. Rounded and flattering on the finish. Drink now. -JM

Vinous 90 points - Pale golden-tinged yellow. Deep aromas of gooseberry, candied pit fruits, green fig, chamomile and sage, with a suave floral topnote. Sappy and penetrating, offering intense nectarine and winter melon flavors complicated by musky notes of coriander and fresh herbs. Becomes sweeter with air and finishes with very good energy and volume, leaving saline and herbal qualities behind. An outstanding Aile d’Argent, one of the best to date.
