94Vinous / IWC

A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry preserves, candied violet and exotic spices, along with a vibrant mineral nuance... Stains the palate with sweet, penetrating raspberry, cherry, mulberry and floral pastille flavors that display a suave blend of power and delicacy...spicy note comes back on an extremely long, floral-dominated finish that's given shape by smooth, harmonious tannins.

93The Wine Advocate

...offering up aromas of raspberries, cloves, violets and peonies, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple palate that's pure and succulent, with powdery tannins and a bright, mineral finish.

93James Suckling

A beautifully defined nose, offering such intense, ripe and pure red and dark berries and attractive, red-floral perfume. Spices and dry stones, too. The palate has seamless build and smoothly fluid tannins, carrying fresh berry and red-plum flavors long.

91+ John Gilman

...beautiful aromatic constellation of sappy black cherries, sweet dark berries, fresh sage, gamebird, violets, dark soil tones, a smoky topnote and a lovely note of currant leaf in the upper register...bright, full-bodied and nicely structured...with a fine core of fruit, very good soil signature, moderate tannins and a long, nascently complex and classy finish.

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.
