Decanter (DCT) : 97 Points (2017)
Aromas of tropical fruit, vanilla, lemon, smoke and oak. The palate is fresh with great richness from the integrated oak. The result is seamless and sexy, the finish and aftertaste coming like a rolling, resounding thunder clap. This trail-blazing wine has more structure, texture, length and balance than commercially made Chenin, making it very food friendly. Built to last but really delicious now.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2017)
Broad and ripe in feel, with creamed pear, melon and yellow apple fruit flavors laced with white ginger and singed hazelnut notes. The long finish features gentle toast, allowing the fruit to play out. Drink now through 2022. 2,140 cases made.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 95 Points (2016)
Produced from a wonderful array of slopes and aspects, the DeMorgenzon Chenin is a brilliantly complex wine: exotic yet refreshing, viscous yet bone dry, rich yet restrained. The oak is very well done here, folded into the layers of the wine. Outstanding winemaking. 2018-24

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2016)
The 2016 Reserve Chenin Blanc, which will be released summer 2017, was slightly deeper in color compared to other vintages. It has a composed bouquet with nectarine, melted wax and dried pineapple scents, a touch of dandelion in the background. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity. I find more nuance and harmony here compared to the 2015, a delicacy married with intensity in the finish, a tang of clear honey on the aftertaste (although there was no botrytis in the vineyard).

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17+ Points (2016)
Tasted Oct 2017 - The oak gives a spicy, creamy, cedary character. Rich, full and creamy and seductive on the palate but has a lovely fresh purity to keep it in shape. The finish is quite oaky at the moment. Needs time. (JH)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2015)
This is a lush, creamy Chenin, brimming with rich notes of honeycomb, honeydew, ripe peach and orange cream. The palate is full and toasty, though ample acidity helps to keep the mouthfeel bright. Notes of baking spice and toasted nuts unfold on the back and linger long on the close. It's delicious now, but should hold and evolve well through 2021.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 92 Points (2015)
This is a selection from estate vines planted in 1972, harvested in four passes, fermented without added yeasts in French oak barrels (25 percent new), and left to rest on the lees in barrels for close to a year. Though present, the oak doesn't get in the way of the wine's floral notes, scents of jasmine and chamomile that lend depth to the notes of fresh cream. It does emerge in a gingery note in the finish, needing bottle age to meld. Then decant it, and the spice will cozy up to blanquette de veau.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2015)
May 2017 - Stephen Tanzer - Bright, light yellow. Pungent, pure aromas of lemon drop and menthol. Shapely and penetrating, showing terrific intensity to the flavors of lemon and grapefruit pith, clove spice and menthol. Strong minerality adds punch to the middle palate and extends the shapely, moderately oaky, very long finish.
