Additional Information

"This is much more elegant with a moderately high-toned nose of cherry and spiced raspberry that merges into fresh, detailed much purer flavors that display a lovely delicacy on the minerally finish. This is lighter than the Clos de Mazeray but much prettier with an attractive sense of harmony." 88 pts. -Burghound, Apr. 2009

    "A rich, smooth, well-oaked red, displaying cherry, red berry and spice flavors. It's no pushover though, with a firm structure keeping it defined and long."
