90/100

Simon Field | Delicate coral, viscosity at the meniscus betraying rigor of intent. The nose is precocious yet expressive, hints of fennel and blackcurrant leaf, citrus fruit. Plenty of matière; wild strawberries evoke Bergman’s refrain, orange peel and nutmeg; the complexity of a scherzo. Resolution promised over the next two to three years. Quite steely, too, but it does not lack for interest. | 91

Andrew Jefford | Bright, glinting pale pink; a swish of gas on the sides of the glass. Lots of fresh-fruit here, and some grassy lift, too, as if it had some Côtes de Gascogne in there somewhere. Juicy and enticing. Ditto on the palate: a very bright mouthful with fresh fruits lifted by that grassy swirl; just a hint of pear-drop ester. Carefully engineered through fermentation for maximum freshness—though that comes at the expense of some length and drive. | 88

Anthony Rose | A pale coppery salmon pink in color. This is fresh, with good intensity of aroma combining floral top notes with hints of pear and berry. And when you taste, after a light spritz on the tongue, it’s really attractive, showing fresh raspberry and pear flavors in a smooth-textured, refreshingly dry, nicely balanced whole. | 91
