" Pleasant aromatic black fruit, ripe grapes. Full bodied, high density but creaminess and fine grain. Tannins perfectly in place which gives a light finale and a beautiful rectitude. "

" Very fresh and elegant notes on the nose, charming and elegant texture, very well vinified, expressing the potential of the vintage. "
Bettane & Desseauve

The World of Fine Wine
" Nice purity and fruitiness, dark berries, cassis and kirsch, good notion of ripeness. The palate has a very good grip, juicy dark fruit, bright freshness, well rounded tannin and a pure long finish. "
Andreas Larsson
" Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black center. Closed nose, showing a quite good potential. On the palate well structured with sweet fruit and good length. "
Markus Del Monego
" Barrel sample. This is a fresh, juicy wine with intoxicatingly fragrant black currant notes. The palate is ripe with fruit, but balanced with bright acidity and a lingering, juicy aftertaste. "
