Wine Enthusiast:  "A firmly structured wine, packed with fruit, acidity and complex tannins.  It is powerful, dark and rich with great weight to balance the dry, smoky character from wood aging.  It's impressive, concentrated with a touch of licorice and spice that cuts through the acidity.  Drink from 2020."  Sep 2014

Vinous:  "Good full medium red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, crushed stone, white pepper, blood orange and flowers.  Tight today and folded in on itself, with some excess CO2 currently suppressing the mid-palate fruit.  Fairly tough tannins cut off the wine's finishing flavors, but the intensity and precision of this grand cru suggest that it will reward seven or eight years of cellaring."  Jan 2013

Allen Meadows' Burghound:  "A strikingly cool, restrained and very floral nose also offers up superbly elegant red currant and wet stone nuances where the latter element completely suffuses the medium weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the focused, precise and driving finish.  There is plenty of mouth coating dry extract but even so, this is presently austere to the point of being Cistercian and as such note well that plenty of patience will be required as this is very firmly structured."  Jan 2013

Winery:  "This wine, which has a generous and complex nose, divulges rich aromas of roasting and spices.  On the palate, it opens with ripe and silky tannins, before showing its strength and its beautiful structure."
