"Good intensity. Alive. Pretty. Clean. Medium intensity. Fruity. Floral. Finely woody. Fresh. Supple attack, developing on a round, fat structure, evolving on flavors of ripe cherry, towards an elegant and aromatic, tannic finish, which still leaves a very wild blackcurrant taste on the finish. Good persistence. Beautiful wine." Jean-Marc Quarin, Quarin.com, Mar 1997
