(2001 Vintage) "This closely resembles the style of the Beaux Monts with its lighter ruby
color and ultra elegant pinot spice aromas followed by medium weight, pure,
complex, quite refined flavors and a creamy, slightly toasty finish. Relatively
light by the standards of many vintages of this wine but it is so elegant that
is it hard to fault."

International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Good deep red. Ripe, nuanced nose offers red fruits, coffee, mocha and underbrush. Suave and silky, with uncommon sweetness for this cuvee; perhaps less classic than the Cros Parantoux but rich and soil-inflected. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and notes of iron and tobacco.
