94 points Wine Enthusiast:

This ripe wine offers great balance between the rich, structured Pinot Noir and the mineral Chardonnay. From a very fine vintage, it reveals intense flavors, layers of ripe apple and a taut texture that promises further aging. The wine can be drunk now, but it will be so much better from 2018. *Cellar Selection* (RV) (12/2016)

94 points Wine Spectator:

 Very minerally on the nose, with brine and smoke accents leading to flavors of cassis, mandarin orange peel and dried white cherry on the buoyant, creamy mousse. Bright and harmonious, with a rich, lasting finish of toast, chopped hazelnut and spice. (AN)  (12/2016)

93 points James Suckling:

 A step up on the previous release (2006), this has good punchy, assertive and focused style to it with ripe lemons and peach fruits, some blueberry pastry, plenty of autolysis and honey. The palate's smooth and dense, has impressive phenolic shape and drive, and balances neatly through the finish.  (10/2016)
