"Racy, offering raspberry and loganberry fruit laced with tangy minerality and a long, fresh, tobacco-tinged finish. Merlot and Malbec." Wine Spectator
"A high score, yes, because it's a good wine, but be warned: it's not classical Bordeaux. In fact it's rather like a serious, modern Cahors – perhaps not so surprising when you know that it's over one-third Malbec, almost unheard of in Bordeaux. It's jet black with an aromatic intensity of black fruit, damsons, licorice and graphite. In the mouth, it's full and dry with inky black fruit, smokiness, minerality, dense, ripe tannins and marked acidity." The Wine Gang
"Elegant and harmonious nose, with fruit and subtle spicy notes. Delectable, ripe and very aromatic on the palate. Superb fruit and an excellent freshness on the finish.17.5/20." La Revue du Vin de France
Fresh aromas of ripe blackberry, morello cherry, lifted violet and rugosa rose with further hints of liquorice, tobacco, clove and marked limestone minerality. Very focused on the palate with broad and spicy fruit on the front, a creamy centre with ripe layers of fruit and spice, fresh acidity to balance and good mineral depth. There are rich velvety tannins supporting a long development with great aromatic intensity and minerality on the finish.
