Hebacious nose but what an absolute beauty in your mouth. Spicy, grassy and a super long finish.

18/20 (95/100) Потрясающе глубокий и яркий аромат кассиса, спелых ягод черники, ванили, гвоздики и шоколада. Относительно легкое с высокой кислотностью. Насыщенное во вкусе с продолжительным послевкусием. Впечатляет.

Very pumped to try this, especially for less than the current retail price on the list at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. One of the more aromatically beautiful wines I’ve had in a long time, with green pepper, some dark earthy / tobacco notes, but a great bit of florality as well. Fine grained tannins with good acidity on the finish. A very complete wine that paired well with a relatively diverse tasting menu. Excellent and a lot of fun.

Nez enivrant typique de Rougeard! Une bouche plus délicate que ce à quoi je suis habitué... millésime moyen ? Fruité très frais, léger... se boit tout seul. Pour amateur de Bourgogne!

Dark forest fruits, trampled flowers, graphite, campfire smoke, fresh red bell pepper, dusty cellar, hard granite, dry savory spice, wet rock. This shit is 🔥

An absolutely beautiful expression of Loire Cabernet Franc. Medium bodied, good acidity and very fine tannins. Just hit its drinking window.

From magnum, was not my wine this time. To green and to thin.

Beautiful nose, red pepper, bit of grass, feminine version of the previous 3 years. Needs to be drunk now

An ethereal quality. No weight at all. Explosion of rose water and berry fruit. Extraordinary.
