Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Dusty, elegant but marginally sweet, with a herbal, floral bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, strawberries and a hint of rhubarb. Medium to light-bodied, it's juicy and sweetly fruited, with a musky, slightly confectionary presence of small red fruits supported by very fine, ethereal tannins and finished by a refreshing acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Very fine and supple, this elegant, shorter-term wine has a spicy, musky bouquet of red cherries, redcurrant and raspberries lifted by sweet floral notes and backed by suggestions of dried herbs and tomato stalk. It's smooth and juicy, long and lively, with a pleasing length of red berries, dark plums and cassis supported by pliant, dusty tannin and finishing with a lingering note of blueberry. Likely to flesh out.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
It's fermented using wild yeasts and has a (very) small amount of pinot noir included in the mix. It's a gem of a wine - individual and high quality. As has been said before, this is a gamay for Burgundy lovers, as funny as that may sound. It's light but strong, juicy but tannic, and carries a deliciously exotic range of flavours - dried tobacco, toast, cranberry, cherry and stalk. It's beautifully structured and should provide excellent drinking enjoyment for the next five or so years - or more.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
A pretty, lightly minty and early-drinking gamay whose smooth and slightly candied expression of cherries, raspberries, blueberries and plums is fine and restrained, framed by supple, fine tannins. While there's a hint of meatiness and a light floral perfume, the palate could use a little more length.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Wild and briary, with depth and brightness of fruit, plus genuine structure. Its spicy floral perfume of stewed redcurrants, red cherries and raspberry confiture reveals rose petal-like undertones. Smooth and silky its supple expression of juicy fresh cherries and spicy red berries is underpinned by fine-grained tannins finishing meaty and savoury.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Slightly dull and developed aromas of earthy red plums and cherries backed by nuances of cloves and vanilla oak. Penetrative flavours of small red berry/cherry fruit with spicy, undergrowth-like complexity tend to lack length, finishing a little flat and herbal.
