"A highly spiced and exceptionally fresh, ripe and airy nose mixes a wide variety of mostly red berry fruit aromas though there are background notes of plum, cassis, lavender and oak. The broad-shouldered flavors possess a seductive texture thanks to the copious amounts of dry extract that push the very firm tannic spine to the background. I very much like the concentration here as well as the vibrancy and this is very, very dry in the best sense of the term, indeed it is presently almost crisp yet the very dense supporting tannins are clearly quite ripe. This should be a fantastic Bèze in time and eventually the 2012 could rank among the great vintages for this storied wine. 97 Points/Drink 2032+" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

"100% new oak. Massive in build and less aromatic than the lesser wines but with masses of interesting stuff going on on the palate. Big but not heavy. At this level the wines are not so so different from the Bernstein counterparts! Rich and round, exciting finish. Lots of subtlety already. Very appetising but under a cloak of oak for the moment. 19 Points/Drink 2024-2042." - Jancis Robinson
