James Suckling

“A wine with raspberry, mineral and light plum character, medium body, light tannins and a pleasant finish. Very drinkable. Pleasant. Best after 2005. 565 cases made. “

Revue des Vins de France

“Always full of character with its ripe fruit and smoky powerful nose, a good texture in the mouth with dense tannins and a well balanced finish with great potential.”

Le Point

“Woody, toasted, blackcurrant jam, bees wax. Well balanced and freshness in the mouth, an attractive gourmet sample.”
