“Lovely intense robe with purple tints. Fruity, more-ish nose with a woody, mineral background. Quite delicate on the palate. The fruit and the wood form lovely harmony. This vintage is already pleasant and will get better.”
2014 Gilbert & Gaillard Guide

“Dark robe. Overwhelming wood on the nose with spicy hints of red and black fruit. Medium-bodied with pronounced tannins and characteristic acidity. Succulent extract of red and black fruit, good length.”
Andreas Larsson – Tasted Journal

“Purple tints on the robe. Black fruit, discrete spice. Medium-bodied and good length.”
Marcus Del Monego – Tasted Journal

“Lovely deep dense robe with small light garnet tints. Delicate nose with hints of fruit compote, a little undergrowth, blackberry jelly and a hint of toast. Same style on the palate, delicate, softened with generous body. A touch of sweetness on the finish, which makes this an appealing Saint Emilion and a perfect match for quail with grapes.” 1001 Dégustations
