Product Description

". . . a lot more nuance and precision . . . . The bouquet is quite beautiful and red fruity, offering up the full panoply of cherries, strawberries and red currants, to go along with notes of woodsmoke, Corton spices, venison, roses and a fine base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nicely structured, with a fine core, ripe tannins and a long, potentially very suave finish . . . . one can see that this will be excellent." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, 93-94+ points.

" . . . there is a lovely vibrancy and freshness in the mouth with plenty of sauvage character present on the velvety and caressing big-bodied and muscular flavors that coat the mouth thanks to the abundance of dry extract that also serves to buffer the very firm tannins on the moderately austere, serious and hugely long finish. As good as this is though it's not clear at this very early juncture whether it will ultimately surpass the Bressandes. Still, both possess outstanding development potential and are of first-rate quality." Burghound 93 points.
