The Wine Advocate "...This is an excellent Gevrey that comes highly recommended....Matured in 30% to 35% new oak, it has a brisk, stony red berry bouquet with attractive undergrowth scents percolating through. Very natural. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp structure, almost chalky tannin, very fine acidity, and a little compact towards the finish but it maintains precision from start to finish. "
Vinous "There is better concentration, weight and volume to the medium-bodied flavors that deliver plenty of punch and minerality on the admirably complex, balanced and lingering finish. This is a quality Gevrey villages.....A brooding but notably fresh nose combines notes of various dark berries, humus, earth and distinct sauvage aromas. "
