Brilliant violet. Intense, mineral-accented red berry and cherry scents are complicated by suggestions of lavender and allspice. Sappy and precise on the palate, displaying bright, spicy lift and cut to the bitter cherry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors. Fleshes out and becomes sweeter on the finish, which shows superb, floral-driven tenacity and silky tannins that come in late. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

This is just so pretty and balanced. Gorgeous wine start to finish.

Massively fruity in this vintage. Just too much.

Very nice, especially from a price to quality perspective. Lighter red in the glass, but at a cool cellar temp this is already quite expressive. Mouth filling, peppery, long finish, great acid, just a bit of tannins on the finish. Excellent with a nice country pate at Bar Boulud.
