What experts says  
  17. "Smoky, reductive. Tight, fresh acidity, highly strung but balanced. Hidden depths.”  
  
90. "Elegant and pure, this silky red offers floral and raspberry aromas and flavors, with a touch of mineral. Firm and fresh, with a long finish."
 
  
89. "A wonderfully elegant and pure nose of ripe liqueur-like essence of red pinot fruit, stone and violet hints precede attractively rich and naturally sweet medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by firm and ever-so-mildly rustic tannins on the serious, long and balanced finish. An excellent villages crafted in an old school style."
