"An extraordinarily spicy, fresh and ripe nose features notes of dark pinot fruit, floral, sandalwood and exotic pekoe tea. There is excellent phenolic maturity to the supporting structure that is remarkably fine-grained which adds to the overall sense of refinement present on the delicious yet powerful and altogether serious middle weight plus flavors that terminate in a gorgeously persistent finish. Like the Clos de Vougeot this is going to require ample cellaring for it to reveal its full, and considerable, potential. 94 Points/Drink 2027+" - Allen Meadows, Burghound

"Bright dark red. Aromas of musky raspberry, rose petal and coffee. Sappy, precise and deep, showing outstanding cut and lift to its flavors of crushed red raspberry and dried flowers. Like the Clos Vougeot this conveys an impression of great vivacity, but this one is in a more feminine, weightless style. The whiplash of a finish, which features noble tannins, leaves the palate vibrating with flavors of red licorice, wild herbs, mint and smoky minerality. "The tiny crop levels of the last few years have made a huge difference," noted Etienne Grivot at this point in our tasting. 95 Points/Drink 2024-2038." - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
