92Vinous / IWC

Vibrant red berry, cherry and floral pastille scents are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance. Silky, sweet and penetrating, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors... Finishes with impressive tenacity and focus, leaving sappy red fruit and spicecake flavors behind.

91The Wine Advocate

...elegant, transparent bouquet with cranberry leaf, crushed strawberry and dried orange peel aromas... medium-bodied with a saline, light marine influenced opening. The acidity here is nicely judged, everything dialed back but very composed and delivering plenty of bright, slightly rustic red berry fruit towards the poised, lightly spiced finish. Excellent.

91+ John Gilman

...very nicely high-toned in aromatic profile...bright bouquet of cherries, strawberries, fresh thyme, lovely soil flavors, coffee and a touch of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and tangy...good mid-palate concentration...

Red Wine, Gamay

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
