Decanter : 97/100 - Platinum "Inviting spicy oak, malt and blackberry cream scents. Powerfully structured tanins, spicy licorice and clove flavors as well as bramble fruit, very long finish. Its best years are far into the future. Terrific stuff."

Terre de vins : 18/20 "Still under age, a little hidden, very greedy from the outset, with candied cherries, waxed leather and encaustic. On the palate, very ripe red and black fruit, light tobacco, eucalyptus. The signature is very energetic, very young, with a pulpy sensation."

Wine Enthusiast : 93/100 "This bold, structured wine from the renowned estate combines rich Mourvèdre tannins with spice and fragrance hinting at the nearby Mediterranean. With its impressive density the wine could age further. Drink from 2022."
