"This is loaded with enticing raspberry and blackberry fruit, along with crushed plum and cherry sauce notes. Sleek and racy through the finish, with the graphite edge starting to take form. Shows nice purity and length." (WS)

"Consulting winemaker Dr. Alain Raynaud has produced a beautiful dense ruby/purple-colored effort offering abundant aromas of licorice, black currants, crushed rocks and flowers. Medium to full-bodied with fresh acids, high but ripe tannins and a long finish, this cuvee is usually fairly priced. It should drink well for 15+ years." (WA)

"Bright, medium-deep ruby. Musky aromas of plum, blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. Juicy, sappy and rather stylish, combining peppery herb nuances with sweet chocolatey black fruit. Neither hugely concentrated nor particularly complex, but silky and insidious long, finishing with suave tannins. Hubert de Bo u ard consults here." (IWC)

"With the assistance of Hubert de Bouard from Chateau Angelus, this property keeps getting better, one step at a time. Earthy, pepper, herbs, plums and coffee aromas catch your interest. The soft, round textures, freshness and vanilla infused black raspberry finish is a pleasure to experience. 90-93 Pts" (JL)

"There’s a lot of sweet fruit here with tobacco, berry and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and silky. Long finish. Best in a long time.$$" (JS)
