Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
94 BH / 91-94 VM
A deft touch of wood sets off a beautifully complex and relatively high-toned nose that combines copious spice notes along with aromas of red and blue pinot fruit, plum and an interesting hint of orange peel. The rich, intense and defined medium-weight plus flavors are also blessed with plenty of dry extract that stains the palate on the impressively persistent finish where once again a touch of bitter cherry appears. This beauty should be terrific in time. Burghound - Outstanding -Don't Miss!
(fully destemmed; 50% new oak): Moderately saturated medium red. Very ripe aromas of plum, red cherry and redcurrant energized by floral and minty nuances. Conveys a stronger impression of vinosity than the Frémiets owing to its underlying saline minerality but the red fruit and sweet oak flavors still give it attractive sucrosité. This nicely sappy, high-pitched wine finishes with excellent subtle persistence and mineral grip. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
