    April 20, 2021 - By the glass at The Jones Family Project, Belgravia.
    We always ask the same question when we have this wine is why aren’t we having this more?! Oranges and mandarin marmalade , textbook vin de Constance, round and supple, full of depth of flavour and lingers in your mouth . Superb 93

    March 19, 2021 - On safari; 3/17/2021-3/19/2021 (Mombo Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana): Yummy, long, and complex. Peach, orange, cantaloupe. First time enjoying this famous dessert wine, and it won me over.

    February 6, 2021 - Second time with this wine and even better than the first. A ton of ripe apricot, peach, honey, and fresh flower leaves on the nose, along with a spice akin to smoked paprika. Palate a very expressive mix of apricot, orange, cinnamon, wild honey, kumquat. This is evolving into an absolutely gorgeous dessert wine. Very viscous on the tongue but not at all tiring to drink. Much more complex than last showing a couple of years ago, but maintaining the same dramatic flavor profile. Many years ahead of it and still on the ascent. Wow.
    Score: 95-96. And probably a bit higher in a few years.
    Relative to expectations: +++.

    December 25, 2020 - Deep gold colour. Pronounced nose and palatte. Sweet, med acidity. Honey, apricot, orange, marmalade, melon. Light and fresh with a lovely looong finish.
