" Nice raspberry nose. The wine is elegant, racy, tannins are smooth, freshness. "
Bernard Burtschy
" Woody toasted. Moka, fresh fruits. Beautiful definition of tannins, straightness, tight grain, a mid-palate soft before rebounding to an airy final for this nice fruity wine. "
Gault & Millau
" Mid crimson. Lightly fruity nose. Medium intensity and a pretty middle-of-the-road light St-Emilion but at least there is nothing forced. Quite nice neat finish. But definitely one of the lighter wines. Drink 2021-2030 "
Jancis Robinson
" This Grand Cru of Saint Emilion has a nice finesse. Red fruits aromas, fine tannins, fresh personality, this wine appears easy to drink but hide a complex lacey structure. "
Matthew Jukes
René Gabriel
" This delicate wine offers smooth frame on a fruit crisp; which seems very accessible but already evolving into a beautiful aromatic complexity. A great success "
Revue du vin de France
" Dark and firm, this is a concentrated wine. It is dense, with a solid, tannic core that is surrounded by luscious berry and plum fruits. While the tannins are dry, the rest is generous, almost sweet in its ripeness. "
Roger Voss - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Tim Atkin
" The nose reveals black fruits, liquorice, woody and spicy notes. Mouth is fresh, with minerality, juiciness, depth and offers a nice tension. This wine shows aromas of juicy black and red berries, as well as plum, strawberry and vanilla. Nice length. "
