James Suckling 92 points: "This wine shows good complexity and development, with nuanced cedar to the minty fruit and sweet tobacco leaves. Sweet berries on the palate, which is rounded by smooth tannins. Very long, creamy and savory finish. Just a little too pleasing and generous in the end, but this is by far the most complex and savory offering from Xige this year. Approaching its peak, so drink now through 2024."
