"Like so many 2004s, this is so wonderfully drinkable now with spice, chocolate and Asian mushroom character. Hints of curry too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a lightly chewy finish. I like the fruit and austerity to this."93 WS
"Very generous, with lovely mouthfeel. The creamy fruit drapes over warm, pebbly tannins, allowing the dark plum and currant fruit to meld with the bay and roasted alder notes. The finish has a grip of earth and stretches out nicely. On point right now. Drink now through 2025."92 RP
"A beautiful example of the vintage, proprietor Michel Reybier and his top-notch winemaker, Jean-Guillaume Prats, have fashioned an exceptional wine displaying a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of boysenberries, black currants, cherries, pain grille, roasted herbs, and licorice. Medium-bodied with impressive density for the vintage, sweet tannin, and outstanding richness and length, it should be at its finest between 2009 and 2020+."
