"Sweet spot Outstanding! Here the nose displays more wood influence than any of the preceding wines though while certainly noticeable, it's not enough to hide the otherwise complex, ultra elegant and high-toned red pinot fruit aromas that introduce rich, full and mineral suffused medium-bodied and sleekly muscled flavors that possess very firm structure and excellent length on the moderately austere finish. This resembles a smaller-scaled Bonnes Mares, which is not as improbable as it sounds given where the majority of the blend hails from." (Jan 2009)
