Expert.pngWhat experts say  
Gault-Millau.jpg

15.5/20 "Aromas of red fruit jam, like the one from our Grandmother. Backcurrant, strawberry, liquorice are dancing around a delicate wooden touch. The palate gets traction with light tannins."

Wine-Spectator.jpg

88/100 "The juicy briar, anise and steeped plum notes are wound with a savory thread and backed by a lightly tarry finish." (previous vintage)
