Although I have tasted the 2007 Vin de Constance on several occasions, this was the first time professionally. It has an explosive bouquet that sprints out of the blocks with a more effervescent, vivacious personality than the 2008. Citrus lemon, Seville orange marmalade, touches of mandarin and a dash of spice all vie for attention. The aromatics are more Sauternes-like than the 2008. The palate is very well-balanced with a viscous opening, a keen thread of acidity and a bewitching sense of poise and focus. This is probably the finest Vin de Constance to date as it fans out marvellously on the multi-layered finish. This is a startling, world-class wine that gives Yquem a run for its money. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Although released by the new management team, the final blend was put together by the previous owner. This rich, nutty, unctuous sweet wine has less pronounced floral notes with more umami and mushroom character. It feels like a Vin de Constance from a different era. 2007 was an excellent year with a cool growing season and a dry, warm, late summer, leading to residual sugar of 177g/l. With the acidity standing out a bit less than in the 2008, this fine wine is drinking beautifully now. - Decanter

Gorgeous, featuring a core of creamed peach, persimmon, maple and nectarine notes inlaid with flashes of green tea, dried papaya and mango. Lush and refined, with accents of blood orange and mouthwatering spice echoing on the finish. Muscat de Frontignan. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported. - JM, Wine Spectator

A well-balanced, powerful dessert wine, this opens with an intense bouquet of fresh peach, orange blossom, jasmine, gardenia and honeysuckle. The mouthfilling, sweet palate is loaded with flavors of ripe stone fruit, mango, melon and orange marmelade, but is kept bright by refreshing acidity on the close. Secondary notes of ginger and white tea linger long on the evolving finish. A wine of class and strength, this is delicious now, but should also easily age through 2020. - Wine Enthusiast

100% Muscat de Frontignan. Winemaker: Adam Mason/Matthew Day, age 27. Lovely golden apricot colour. Spicy reduced apricots and grapey too. Fabulously rich and intense and long. Complex already but will clearly become more so. - Julia Harding MW, Jancis Robinson .com
