International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 77

Deep red-ruby color. Sauvage black fruit and mineral nose complicated by notes of game and smoke. Spicy and fat in the mouth, with bright flavors wines. Has size and intensity. Quite long on the palate, with firm but more evenly distributed tannins. A distinct level up from the Pruliers.

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 118

This wine is outstanding. Revealing a color verging on dark ruby, this (also from 60 year old vines) has expressive aromas of blackberries, cassis, minerals, and porcini mushrooms. It has intense, mouth-coating, and rich layers of sweet black fruit-drenched stones, and earth-like flavors, as well as a rich, broad and deeply ripe full body. In addition, this very impressive wine offers an extremely long finish loaded with fat and round tannins.

Consistent notes. Pretty, med.-dark ruby to mahogany red color; full nose of bing cherries and red & black fruit, leather, spice & earth; firm on the palate with prominent acid, tannins still seem a bit rough, plenty of fruit to provide balance; long finish. Very good but not fine - I've much better Burgundies from Gouges. Should continue to drink well for a few more years.

Excellent wine. Fresh cherries and raspberries, musty workboots, anise, sawdust. Excellent velvety palate structure with fine acid and a sharp finish.
