Stephen Tanzer 90-92 Ruby-red. A fragrant bouquet evokes red berry preserves, violet and vanilla, along with smoke and anise topnotes. Sappy, sweet and expansive, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors enlivened by a tangy mineral nuance. Fine-grained tannins give grip to the finish, which leaves floral and allspice notes behind.

eRobertParker 88-90 ...pure, clean berry fruit, mineral and underbrush aromas and flavors flowing to a medium-bodied, traditionally styled palate feel. Showing underlying structure and good fruit, it should have over a decade of longevity.

The vinification process benefits from the use of a modern equipment : a light pressing and destalking for certain vintages ; with fermentation carried out at automatically regulated temperatures – all give our wines a more delicate and fruity flavor and allow them to age well.
