95 Points Allen Meadows
A kaleidoscopic nose of different spice elements is pure, elegant a airy, combining mostly red berry fruit aromas that are in perfect keeping with the minerally, detailed and impeccably balanced middle weight plus flavors that possess superb length. This is a wine of finesse and Zen-like harmony with a supporting framework of very fine tannins that come across as cashmere on the caressing finish.

Sylvain describe this wine as the ‘cherry on the cake’. Just three barriques are made from his 16.73 acres (a tiny plot).
Extremely charming with very pure, pure fruit with lots of sweetness and appeal. Broad and rich yet with wonderfully pure fruit – this has to be a steal (I hope…). Racy, limpid, less dense than DRC’s version but definitely of the vineyard. Great terroir expression. Very, very fine. Quite open and it wants you to love it which can be no bad thing, can it?
