About the wine (on the 2012 vintage):
Wine Spectator: 89
"A plump, fleshy style, with plum compote and raspberry coulis notes gliding along, carried by hints of anise and singed wood spice. Everything hangs gently on the finish."

Bettane & Desseauve: 16
"Beautiful minerality, elegant tannins, a lot of intensity. Brillant."
