98 points from Suckling:

A tight and beautiful white with a dense palate of beautiful, ripe lemons and apples. Layered and refined with phenolic tension. Complex yeast and hints of oak and flor. Full body. Great length. 80 per cent flor-growth in barrel.

95 (and “Chardonnay of the Year”) from British wine writer Tim Atkin:

Jura was the influence and inspiration for this stunning Chardonnay, aged under flor. Leesy, racy, saline and yeasty, with a core of acidity, subtle oak and a long, tapering finish. A boundary-pushing white for Argentina.”

As always, Tanzer describes it beautifully and in detail:

Bright yellow. Very ripe apricot and peach aromas are lifted by a floral element and some sexy oak. Tactile, dry and fully ripe, with its stone fruit and floral flavors energized by harmonious acidity. Broad, sophisticated Chardonnay with a lovely savory umami quality and captivating floral lift. Winemaker Alejandro Vigil puts 20% Chardonnay from older vintages in the bottom of each 500-liter barrel and ages this wine under a layer of flor, which I find partly masks the wine's acidity, at least in the early going.

Next to Roulot’s ridiculously good (though very pricy) Patagonian example, this is easily the most impressive – and fascinating – South American Chardonnay I’ve tasted.
