Guide Hachette des Vins 2024 : 1 étoile "Mourvèdre dominates (90%) in this dark red, with a powerful bouquet that reveals perfectly ripe fruit and the mark of a still dominant but careful ageing process. On the palate, the wine is delicate, fleshy and supple, with mellow tannins and a savoury finish reminiscent of wild berries and sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). A Bandol that will hit the spot as soon as the cold weather sets in, with stewed meat."

Jancis Robinson : 17/20 "Oak spices, ice-cold peppermint and blackberries. The wine started very oaky, but relaxed more and more over three days, the purity of the fruit pulling forward ahead of the oak. Wonderful striations of dried thyme embedded into the dark succulence of the fruit. Masses of ultra-fine tannins, almost invisibly meshing the wine together."

James Suckling : 92/100 "An elegant and crunchy Bandol with notes of baked cherries, plums, stones, dried herbs, white pepper and lavender. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Agile and well-crated with a vivid core of forest berries towards the tonic-like finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
