" It is not impressive but it is very present, without exuberance. The balance is magic, with delicacy, elegance putting forward the fruit and nothing else. An angelic caress! "
Gault & Millau
" Pure red fruit that is almost more like New World Pinot Noir than right bank Bordeaux! Lovely ripeness, even though there is a herbal character too. Higher tannins that anticipated on the finish. Finishes very chewy, in fact. Has the fruit purity to last, though, so would be worth ageing. "

René Gabriel
" Deep red robe. The nose reveals aromas of fruit such as cherry, on the palate the wine reveals vanilla and fruits "
Right & Hype
" Both tannic and fruity, this is a balanced wine that could go far. It was weight and dark, dry tannins, as well as juicy black-currant fruitiness. "
Wine Enthusiast (Roger Voss)
