Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
#14 James Suckling Top Wines of France
Super-bright nose, with notes of notes of cranberry, pomegranate and hibiscus. At once very concentrated, super-focused and almost icy cool on the palate, this leaps out of your glass and off into the direction of infinity. Breathtaking finish! From a yield of just under 20 hectoliters per hectare. Drink or hold. —James Suckling
