This is the real McCoy for this price point. The freshness here is undeniable, as it exudes citrus, rose petals, nectarines, sliced dill and coriander and the signature strawberries and cream. Flavorful and intense on the medium- to full-bodied palate yet so very restrained and elegant. Super-value wine as always. Drink now. 92 points. – James Suckling
More palate grabbing by far from the Provencal pink norm. – Jancis Robinson
