Parker review

One of my favorite estates and a bastion of traditionally made, age-worthy wines, The 2012 is an impressive traditional cuvee that offers textbook black cherry, ground herbs, underbrush, leather, and spice-driven aromas and flavors. This medium-bodied, mid-weight effort is nicely balanced, with clean integrated acidity and fine tannin. It should have a decade or more of prime drinking. Drink 2015-2022. 89-91.

Revue du Vin de France: Réussite exceptionelle ! Nez gracieux, très élégant avec une touche florale et un parfum de vendange entière. Il évolue sur une note d'agrume. Bouche avec du relief et une belle énergie. Il ya du muscle mais accompagné par une sensation de fruit plein et dense. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. 91-93/100. Deep ruby. Lively aromas of fresh red berries, potpourri and Asian spices, with a hint of blood orange adding an exotic flourish. Smooth, seamless and focused on the palate, offering vibrant, mineral-tinged raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of anise. Supple tannins come on late and add shape to the long, sweet, penetrating fin-ish.
