- 17,5 Punkte VINUM, Arrivage: „Von verführerischer, aromatischer Komplexität, superbes, pulvriges Tannin, unglaubliche Harmonie, zeigt Tiefe und Dichte, der ist Alkohol spürbar, aber gut eingebunden: bestätigt unsere hohen Erwartungen!. 2020-2035.“
- 93 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "Still austere at this point, it is certainly serious for a 2012. It's extremely young, silky and polished, opening beautifully in the glass to reveal rich chocolate, gourmet damson and cocoa-dusted edges. An impressive wine that needs time. 60% new oak. 53% of production. Drinking Window 2021 – 2038"
- 92-94 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Roger Voss: "…, this is a wine with great fruit and firm structure to support it. Ripe and full in the mouth, it's a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste."
- 93 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, James Molesworth: "This red offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing. Best from 2017 through 2025. 8,500 cases made."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||At rst, the 2012 vintage was to be dicult: whether our oceanic climate would have been forgotten in the last few years, we’ve been denitely reminded of our location, which is indeed rather good to produce great quality wines, but sometimes also quite humid. The vineyard had seldom needed such an amount of work, and all along the season, we kept going all through the vineyard. On the rst 2 weeks of July, to compete the lack of sun, over 140 people came to “écharder” 100% of the vineyard. End of August, as we wanted to denitely homogenize the maturity, it’s been decided to “clean” clusters from each single still green and pink berry, in order to only keep the best. Finally, thanks to such a precise work and naturally low yields, maturity was reached only 1 week later than usual. Each single day, vinestock aer vinestock and bunch by bunch, vintners made even better from what Mother Nature had given. Even if some rains at the end of September araised some doubts, the knowledge and experience of our technical team made it possible to keep cold blood. The work in the vineyard througout the year is very benecial and allow us to obtain a healthy and qualitative harvest. Tasting Notes: Nice and deep color. The nose is intense, complex and delicate. The aromas are roasted with red fruits, blackcurrant, blackberry but also licorice completing the combination. On the palate, the wine is tight without excess, juicy and voluptuous. It deserves to age a few more years. 2017-2035|
