Good dark red. Aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, mocha, licorice and peppery spices. Juicy, intense and fine-grained, with a strong saline quality adding interest to the dark fruit and chocolate flavors. The long, rising finish features suave, sweet tannins. Rating: 91 - 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2012)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

This is intensely and a rather exotically aromatic. Very supple on the attack. Quite sumptuous berry fruit up front. Very juicy fruit with good freshness. Smoothly supportive tannins. It finishes on an energetic note. I like the tension at the end, but the Chaignots seemed to have more depth. Fine. Rating: 17.75 - 18 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Jan 2012)

This is also quite spicy with ripe and well-layered aromas of red and blue pinot fruit that is satisfyingly fresh. The rich, dense and enveloping flavors possess excellent phenolic maturity as well as outstanding depth and length on the mouth coating finish. Here the tannins are a bit more prominent and will require a few more years of cellar time to resolve. 2024+ Rating: 91 - 93 Allen Meadows, 2012)

Delicate and fresh but sinewy. Not very integrated. Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2012)

Concentrated cherry fruit, beautifully ripe and round, and with malleable tannins on the back palate. Acidity is just so, balancing the dryness nicely. Complex peppery and liquorice finish. Gripping. Rating: 17 Julia Harding MW, 2012)
